Another tweak to Backup feature: Backup Full Account

May 18th, 2020

Last week, we expanded the Backup feature with the ability to backup only selected manuals. However, some users missed the easy one-click Backup button to backup all manuals, without having to checkbox all manuals first.

No problem at all! We have now re-introduced a Backup Full Account button and have also expanded this full backup with all account level customization images and CSS files.

Improved Backup / Restore functionality

May 12th, 2020

We implemented two important changes to the Backup / Restore today.

Make backups of selected manuals only

Previously, the Backup feature always created a backup of all manuals in your entire account. This is fine if you are just making full backups for safety purposes.
But in some cases, you may want to just Backup specific manuals, e.g. if you want to transfer some manuals to a different Manula account, or if you prefer to make regular quick backups of only the manual(s) that are you currently working on.

So with today’s update, we made that possible. Just checkbox the manuals you want to make a backup of and hit the Backup button on the bottom right. The backup file will only contain the manuals you selected and only the images that are used in those manuals.

Restore feature now fully restores images

At the same time, we have improved the Restore feature to fully support the restoring of only the images of the selected manuals. This way you can efficiently move manuals to a different account.

Fix: Backup zip could not be opened

July 11th, 2014

zipA couple of users reported that downloaded Backup zip files could not be opened on their Windows system. We investigated and found that the folder structure used inside the file was not compatible with the standard unzipper of some Windows versions.
We have now changed the folder structure to one compatible with all unzippers. If you have been running into the above problems, please re-download the Backup file.
