To restore an entire milestone, click the Revert all files link for the milestone that you want to restore. A dialog box appears, warning you that changes made that have not been saved in a milestone may be lost:

To view a list of the files in a saved milestone, click the Show Files link for the milestone that you want to view. The Milestones window expands to display this list:

Note: The list of saved files displayed in the Milestones window includes a file named project settings. This file is automatically generated by the Iguana Translator, and contains code that specifies what files are displayed in the Project Manager panel. You will not need to edit this file.

To compare a file in your current script with the file saved in this milestone, click the Diff link next to the file name. A difference window appears, displaying the differences between the current file and the saved file:

For information on how to work with this difference window, see Using the Difference Window to Track Script Changes.

To restore a single file in a milestone, click the Revert link next to its name:

A dialog box appears, warning you that any changes that have not been saved in a milestone might be overwritten:
