I don't have CAD experience and little documentation experience. I'm an IT guy, so my perspective is a bit different than most you.

I find the version & revision referencing a little confusing. For instance, using the out-of-the-box default workflow and it's revisioning scheme, I have a SWPart that is showing M-13 on the "Contains" tab Version field, but in the below window it shows 17/17 in the version column.

I know that the "17" increments anytime the file is checked out and back in, and the M-13 increments when the file runs through the workflow, but what is the proper way to look at these two different numbers to avoid confusion?
