Version settings

Save different snapshots of your design system with versions.

You can create versions of your design system and documentation in Supernova. A version is essentially a snapshot of your design system content at one moment.

The current, editable version of your workspace is called the Current draft.


You can easily create and manage versions of your design system in the Versions section of your design system settings.

Version settings

Create a new version

New version dialog
  1. Go to Design System settings -> Versions.
  2. Click New version.
  3. Enter a version number (using semantic versioning).
  4. You can optionally add a version name and description.
  5. Click Create version to finish.

This version can now be accessed through the version dropdown. Select a version to view your design system exactly as it was at the time of the version release.

All design system content (tokens, components, assets) in the snapshot cannot be edited, only read.

Edit or delete a version

Delete version dialog

You can also edit the version details, or delete a version.

To do so:
