Hi Christian,

SAVE will save your changes and remain in Edit mode.

DONE will save your changes and exit Edit mode.

Also when clicking Done, the edit lock is released, while clicking Save leaves it in locked state. See the lock icon beside the buttons...

Thanks Carol, when a new version is created ? At save time or done or both ?

The revised version of the artifact is saved when you click either Save or Done.  If I'm doing something significant, like adding a large table or a lot of text, I click Save periodically, just in case. When I'm completely finished, I click Done.

I've noticed our new users tend to click Save, then Done, which while unnecessary to do both, is fine.
