I am just testing out versions, so I made a test cabinet use versioning. I also checked the "Automatically create new versions" setting to true. At that point I could still edit documents from the viewer, and things worked as I expected.
I then turned off "Automatically create new versions", and played with the check-in/check-out functionality. Once again, things worked as I anticipated.
Just now I turned "Automatically create new versions" back ON, and then totally exited DocuWare and got back in. But when I look at a document in this cabinet, I still see check-in/check-out options and the ability to edit the document is greyed out. To change it I would still need to check it out to a document tray, modify it, then check it back in.
Shouldn't things go back to letting me edit the document from the viewer and auto-fill the new version info?
This is not a big deal, as I don't think we'll be using versions, but I want to understand what is going on here...
(We are 6.11 on premise.)
EDIT: If I view a document that is still on version 1.0, I CAN edit the document. The one I cannot is on version 5.0, Does that mean that if any manual versions are created, one can never go back to automatic versioning for any document that is of a non-original version?
