Learn about the power of Snapshot's ability to create document states you can go back to.
- [Instructor] Snapshots are a great way to store…the current state of your design…at a particular point in time,…hence the name Snapshots.…In this video I'll demonstrate how you can create,…restore, delete, and create new documents from a Snapshot.…So I have this layout for a UI for a mobile website,…and it's the about us page,…and I just want to try a couple…of different design variations.…Sometimes when you're creating designs…you can go down a path and do a bunch of things…and then you'll want to go back…and instead of Control + Z…and losing everything that you did,…you can save a Snapshot at that current point,…and then continue on creating a new design…and create a new Snapshot.…
Any time you go back to any one of those Snapshots…by restoring it…you go back to that point and you get all your layers…and everything is bundled up still available…to you at that point in time.…So let me show you what I mean.…If you look down here at the bottom…we have the History and the Navigator…and we went through that in the last video.…
