Why can't I remove specific versions of attachments?

According to the documentation for Conf 4.3 release (also pictured here), I should be able to remove select versions in the attachment version history. This feature was added under CONF-5520. However, I do not seem to have that feature available (see screenshot below). I am running Conf 5.4.3. Where is the "Remove" link?SNAG_Program-0231.png

Ahh, apparently I didn't read the documentation closely enough:

Viewing attachments on a page

When a page you are viewing contains attachments, a small paperclip icon appears next to the breadcrumbs. Clicking the paperclip icon will take you to the 'Attachments' view, where you will see the full list of attachments.

(emphasis mine)

That is a non-intuitive user interface in my opinion, but at least it works.

First of all you are not on the attachments page. You are viewing the attachments through the attachments macro. If you click on the tools menu then click on attachments that will take you to the attachments page. If you still do not see it on the attachments page then you probably don't have the delete attachments permission for the space.

Thanks for the quick answer. I realized exactly what you were saying just before you posted.
