Life cycle of a change pages partition

Once the output is correct, the partition can be printed, and/or created electronically, and then distributed. At this point the partition is published.

While it is not possible to edit material once a release has been published, it is possible to cancel and delete the current release and revert to the previous release.

Before making any changes to the data, use the Next Update command to create a new release. At this point the partition is in the update phase and the partition content may be altered and typeset. If you have not selected Only check for output changes when publishing in the partition properties the Pages display will show changed pages with a tick:

A green tick indicates a change caused by the content of the page, while a red tick indicates a derived change.

When the release is ready to distribute, use the Publish command. The Pages display changes to:

where the color of the corners has the same meaning as above. At this point you can print or create a PDF of the changed pages, produce a list of filing instructions and a list of effective pages.

The Label this Release command assigns a release specific label (for example, August 2013). A stylesheet Header and Footer mapping can use the value of this label to identify the pages that change in each release.
