Version comment is blank in a document library: SharePoint 2013.
Issue: When you check-in back a document and enter comment in the version history you see you comments are not saved.
Error: There is no error message, it’s just version comments are missing.
Background: on some of the site when version is enabled and require check-out before you edit a document is enabled you see that when you write comments in version and reading versions history versions are there but their associated comments are not there.
We check-out on other document libraries and this problem was across.
We disabled version on a particular library and saw not difference.
We disabled require document to be checkout and saw no difference.
Set-up another document library with same features enabled and problem was there.
I noticed this is wider problem them expected.
Found a hotfix published by MS on October, 2013 has listed about the issue.
This hotfix also does talks about many other related issue.
Alternatively installing cumulative update this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2825647
could also resolve the problem.
