What is Revision History?

Revision History allows CKEditor 5 users to create and view the chronological version history of their content.

  • Create and name versions by bundling changes together in a save cycle.
  • View the chronological version history of your content in version preview mode.
  • Restore an earlier version of your document to easily reverse any changes.
  • Compare selected versions to each other and easily view changes between.

Version preview mode allows for easy viewing of content development over time. In preview mode you can track:

  • Edits like insertions and deletions, including merges and splits.
  • Suggested changes made with the Track Changes feature.
  • Total number of changes made.
  • Upcoming Real-time collaborative changes.

Bring more efficiency to your rich text editor

Having access to version control right in a WYSIWYG rich text editor allows authors to create content and manage versioning more efficiently.


Choose to create versions automatically by configuring automatic save cycles, or on demand by saving the content manually.


Further customization of the revision history feature as well as the editor makes it the perfect fit for your application’s requirements.


When Revision history is combined with CKEditor 5 Collaboration Features, your application achieves a Google Docs-like writing experience.

Perfect for:

  • Individuals who would like to version their content progress and need easy version comparison and restoration.
  • Handling elaborate documents such as legal contracts, policies or clinical trial reports, whether a document has one author or multiple.
  • Managing large documents with multiple authors and reviewers, or with numerous control phases.
