Editing a project in the editor

In order to open the editor for a project in versiondog, proceed as follows:

  1. In the Project tree, select a file
  2. In the Start tab, click on Open with editor (see below).

You can also open the editor by right clicking on the mouse or by pressing F4.

Open projects via command line

You can open projects via command line without having to log into the UserClient.

To do this, you will need to create a batch file with the following data:


C:\Programme\VDogClient.exe /at:c /rd:f\vdClientArchive" /CPATH:\Plant 1\Hall 1\Area 1\ 77" /account:{User} /password:{User}

This will open the project in the UserClient. To edit the project, click on open in editor.

FAQ: In our company the projects from the vdServerArchive are stored on a web platform. Is it possible to edit these projects directly on this platform?

The projects can be edited via command line and via the UserClient. See the information in this tutorial for information on how to proceed.

This procedure is only possible if your web-based platform allows you to start programs on your PC. Please refer to the manufacturer’s documentation.

Editing projects

Edit your project as usual. versiondog does not influence this work in any way. Bare the following important points in mind:

To save backup copies of "intermediate states" of your work in the server archive before you have reached a state of which you want to create a version, proceed as follows:

  1. Save the project / the file
  2. Close it
  3. Then use the quicksave function (see also Quicksave)

After you've made your changes and reached a state with which you want to create a version (a version is a documented "snapshot" of your project that you can return to at any time), proceed as follows:
Save the project or the file, close the editor and then proceed as described in Create new version and Check-In

If you only want to perform the three basic functions of the UserClient (check-out, edit project in the editor and create new version and check-in), you can also use the EasyClient. For more information, see the EasyClient tutorial.
