4.1Creating a Tag

A tag is a function used to help you check the contents of your book at a certain time point whenever you want to. You can use a tag for the following purposes.

In the editor, you can compare the tagged contents with other tags or all revision histories including the latest version.

Latest Version Tag

When you create a book, a tag called the “Latest Version” is automatically generated.

User Defined Tag

A user can create a tag when they need to. A user can create a tag in the following order.

  1. In the detailed book screen, go to the <Tag & Publishing> panel and click on the <Create Tag> link.

  2. Enter your basics, styles, and whether to publish it externally in the form and click on the <Save> button.

The following is the difference between the “Latest Version” and an user defined tag.
