I’m editing/rewriting today, working with the split screen. I’ve just started and am working on the opening of the book, during which I often write multiple copies until I find the approach that works best for me. As I was doing this, I was creating new text files for each and wonder if a revision system like wikis offer would be useful.
I envision it as adding a “clean slate” button, which would create an expandable folder icon. Clicking on the icon itself would show the most recent or “published” version. Expanding the folder would allow one to go back in time and reread each attempt.
When publishing, the selected version would be compiled.
Not certain how much people would use this - it is a bit of a strange concept and may not return any value. If anyone is interested, please add your thoughts.
