Uploading a revision

Do you need to change content in a document you’ve uploaded to Scribd’s library? You can upload a revision to any of your existing uploads through the Scribd website, making updates as simple as possible! A revision will replace the old copy of your document upload, all while retaining its statistics and unique URL.

To prepare for your document revision:

  1. Edit your original document on your computer and save your revisions
  2. Make sure the revised document on your computer is saved as a file type that can be uploaded to Scribd (See our Supported file formats)

To upload your document revision:

  1. Open your Document Uploads
  2. Select the pencil icon to the right of the document you want to revise
    (Note: On a mobile web browser, the pencil icon will be located directly under the document)
  3. On the document’s edit page, scroll down to the “Replace existing version of the document” section
  4. Click or tap on “Upload a new revision”
  5. Using the “Choose File” button, select the file containing your revision
  6. Click or tap the “Upload” button

You’ll be redirected to view your document on Scribd once the revision has been processed. If you don’t see the revisions immediately, you may need to refresh your web page.

Restoring a previous version of your document

You can always revert a document upload to a previous version later if needed. Older versions of your document are stored in the document’s edit page, and only you will be able to see them. 

To restore a previous version of your document:

  1. On the document’s edit page, scroll down to the “Replace existing version of the document” section
  2. Hover over the document version you want to restore and the “Revert” option will appear
    (Note: On a mobile web browser, you must tap on the document version you want to restore to see the “Revert” option)
  3. Click or tap on “Revert”
  4. The document version selected will change to say “Current” and confirm the reversion
