Publishing a major version
Publishing assigns a major version to a file, and there is no minor number assigned as there is when a file is checked in. Typically, a file is published when it is in a final state to signify that it is official or ready to be distributed to a printer or other outside parties.

Right-click Product Library, a solution, product class, series, product, instance, or area of interest, then click Manage Files.
The file manager appears.
- If necessary, click Library to display the product library tree view.
- Navigate to the file for which you want to get a local copy.
Right-click the file and click Properties.

The file version increases to the next whole number. For instance, if you have a file that is currently version 1.2, publishing it changes the version number to 2.0.
