How to: Update your deviation

Fri Mar 25, 2016, 12:38 PM


So, over the last couple weeks I have been receiving some frequent questions on how to update the main file on a deviation, which is why I created this little guide for you!

STEP 1.
Go to your deviations page. 
STEP ONE by Yuukon

STEP 2.
Click the big EDIT button on the right side of the page, where normally the "favourite" button is
STEP TWO by Yuukon

STEP 3.
Once you're on the edit page, you'll see everything you can edit. Where you see a preview of your deviation, there's a pencil on the right top corner. Click it.
STEP THREE by Yuukon

STEP 4.
Click "Change Main File" and selected your updated work.
STEP FOUR by Yuukon

STEP 5. 
Click "Update".
STEP 5 by Yuukon

And you're done! Hope this helps! :happybounce:

Today, it won't let me click update anything. I put the stuff in, but it decides to not let me click update. I click it and it does nothing.

I heard from someone else who was having this issue. It's probably a bug. I'm sure it'll be fixed soon!

I tried updating a text thing too and the edit option wouldn't even pop up. I had to reupload it, just to update it.

I cannot fix it- be patient for a while. I'm sure it'll be fixed soon.

I've been having this same issue, and it's been going on for several days now. For some reason, it'll let me update the image files and descriptions from regular art files, but not from literature or text files. It happens no matter which browser I use, and how often I restart it or clear my cache.

Will it keep the old one somewhere?

No, you will have to keep the old one on your computer if you want to save it.
