If you’re hitting the local versions limit you may wish to delete some versions. Or perhaps you just want to get rid of versions you don’t need anymore, to tidy up and make things easier to manage.
This page will cover:
- Deleting a single local version
- Deleting all local versions of a creation
- A note on related local versions
If you need more general information about deletion, please refer to the main deletion page.
Adding version notes when you save a new version will really help you differentiate your versions and find the exact one you need.
What is a LOCAL Version?#
A LOCAL version is any version that’s saved on your console, and includes Quick Saves. It does not include PRIVATE, PLAYABLE or PUBLIC versions - these are all online versions.
STEP-BY-STEP: Deleting a Single LOCAL Version#
1 - Go to your creation’s cover page (accessible via DreamShaping/My Creations).
2 - On the cover page, hit the Versions button.
3 - On the Versions & Release page, select the LOCAL tab.
4 - Select the LOCAL version you wish to delete.
5 - On the Version Details page, hit the button.
6 - If you’re asked to delete LOCAL related creations/versions which haven’t been saved online yet, see here for more details.
7- You will now be asked if you’re sure you want to delete this LOCAL version. Hit the YES button to confirm. The version will be deleted.
You can’t delete a LOCAL creation by deleting all its individual versions. You must delete all LOCAL versions (see below) or delete the whole creation.
STEP-BY-STEP: Deleting All LOCAL Versions of a Creation#
1 - Go to your profile and select My Creations.
2 - On the My Creations page, select the Delete Local Saves button.
3 - You’ll now find yourself on the Local Deletion page.
4 - Select which creations to delete all LOCAL versions of.
5 - Hit the Delete button at the top-right.
6 - If you’re asked to delete LOCAL related versions which haven’t been saved online yet, see here for more details. All of the details and instructions for related LOCAL creations also apply to related LOCAL versions.
7 - You will now be asked if you’re sure you want to delete all LOCAL versions. Hit the YES button to confirm. All LOCAL versions of the selected creations will be deleted.
Deleting all LOCAL versions includes Quick Saves, which you may want to keep if you’re still working on something.
Related LOCAL Versions#
When deleting versions you’ll sometimes be asked to delete related LOCAL versions. A related version is a LOCAL version which has some kind of relationship with the version that you’re trying to delete (or save online). Perhaps it’s a remix, or a stamp. For reasons of confirming your permissions to use related versions, and for maintaining genealogy, you’ll be asked to delete them. Please see Understanding Related Creations & Versions for more.
