FAQ: You perform a Check-In of a component that is a Documentation component type and while doing so a dialogue box "Unversioned changes in working directory" pops up, informing you that "these unversioned changes will not be copied to the server”. What changes are referred to here and how should you go about resolving the problem?

Specific scenario

The user wishes to create and Check-In a version of a component that is a Documentation component type. The component was created with a file whose name contains a hyphen with the shortcut (ALT + 0150). When creating a new version of the component, a dialogue box appears, telling you that the "unversioned changes will not be copied to the server".


The dialogue box appeared because the hyphen with the shortcut (ALT + 0150) was not recognized and was therefore replaced by another symbol.


If you click on Continue, the component will be saved on the server. We strongly recommend, when naming Documentation component types, that you do not use the shortcut (ALT + 0150).
