    Numbers 1 Number 0
    Letters 1 A,B,C,...,Z
  2. Create two revision numbers:
    Revision number name Revision number format string
    Pre-release Rev Numbers
    Release Rev Letters
  3. In the pre-release workflow states, on the Revision Numbers tab, select Pre-release from the list of revision numbers.
  4. In the release workflow states, on the Revision Numbers tab, select Release from the list of revision numbers.
  5. Click Save or File > Save to save the workflows.
