If you don't want to overwrite your original diagram after making changes, you may work with versions of that diagram.

Save New Version

To save a diagram as a version click on "Save New Version" in the "Save As" menu. You can find it either in the quick access toolbar or the application menu.

The following dialog will be displayed. You can now enter a name for the new version and a description.
