Question

I notice it is not possible to look back on old revisions of .gif files that were created using the TWikiDrawPlugin on CairoRelease.

After changing a drawing multiple times, the exampledrawing.gif shows multiple revisions in RCS, but to look back at any of the older revs with the manage button always shows the most current version of the drawing.

This happens even afer a SHIFT+Reload and attempted URL hack to add ?rev=1.1, etc.

Are the older revisions of TWikiDrawPlugin drawings gone forever, or is there a way to pull them back & look at them ?

Thanks !! Keith

On 24 Nov 2006, CrawfordCurrie said the following in TWikiDrawPluginDev

Note that some work was done on an SVG-saving TWikiDraw, but the code was never finished properly.

There is a bug in TWikiRelease04Sep2004: it is not possible to get rev 1.1 from the attach cgi-script. It always loads the latest version instead of 1.1. the other revisions are working fine.

v1.1: http://abt-ismtwiki.de.bosch.com/twiki/pub/Web/ToPic/file.ext

v1.2: http://abt-ismtwiki.de.bosch.com/twiki/bin/viewfile/Web/ToPic?rev=1.2&filename=file.ext

so workaround exists: copy link of v1.2 paste into link window and substitute rev=1.2 by rev=1.1

The bug is fixed at least with TWiki 4.1.2.

I am not 100% sure if this was the problem KeithHelfrichs described.
