It would be great if it was possible to directly copy elements from an earlier version of a document. Right now you have to duplicate the file to be able to access selection/copying.
Yes! I don’t use it too often, but when I do it would be so helpful to be able to select.

You can use it to save versions of your work, and then there shouldn’t be any problem to copy elements from an earlier version.
Is that helpful?
From what I understand, you would use that plugin to start a new version history for a single element, which is not what I’m after.
My issue was that I deleted a bunch of photos in my file earlier the same day that I wanted back. To get them back I would have to open the file’s version history, duplicate a certain earlier version, open that duplicate, copy the old photos, paste them into my main document, and then finally delete the duplicate. What I propose instead is the option to select and copy elements when you’re in the version history “mode”. This way you would skip the duplication steps
Same here, it’s really annoying that need to duplicate file + if copy between files, all the components are becoming frames.
