I'm having an issue with the versions of drawings I have in SharePoint.

 

Since recently updating my AutoCAD software, when I check out, update then check a drawing back in, the drawings version in SharePoint reverts back to 1.0.

 

For Example:-

 

I was updating a drawing that was last worked on in AutoCAD 2016 and was at version 6.1 in SharePoint. After checking the drawing out making my changes (within AutoCAD 2021) then checking back in, instead of having the option to make a minor version or 6.2 or a major version of 7.0. My only options are minor 0.1 and major 1.0.

 

Does anyone know the reason for this? Is it due to saving it in a different version of AutoCAD where SharePoint somehow thinks it's a brand new drawing?
