Are you really sure you want that projectplace modifies the documents you upload? What happens if something goes wrong in the modification process?

I would argue that the version number in PP should NOT match the version number in the document. This is not necessary for good version management.

There are many cases where you might create a new version in PP but not substantially change the contents of the actual document. By forcing this link you are creating unnecessary work and it will also mean the document history (within the document) could become huge.

Best practice is to only use the internal document version number where the content of the document has changed substuantially and warrents a new version. I would then copy this number into the Change Description field when checking the document back into PP.

Another possibility could be the change of the file-name only (from ....._Rev08 to ....._Rev09 for example). This would at least ensure that an update is captured somewhere and the document itself will not be changed...

I agree with the problem, especially on printed documents it would be great to be able to see which version the printed document it is. I wouldn't like it to be in the footer of the document but in the same way as with web pages when you get the http-link at the bottom of the page on prints. It should of course be optional.

Wouldn't it be possible to access the version number from a macro in word via the plugin. Thus you can choose to include the version if you like?
