Is it possible to edit "Properties" of a document?

Each time I edit "properties" of any document, version is being changed. Is it possible to edit and it remain in same version?

That is what happens when you select the overwrite option when check-in the document. Then it will not update the version number.


To disable versioning in library go to :

Library settings > Versioning settings > Choose No Versioning option

    This disables ALL versioning, not just when editing properties as the original question asked Commented Jul 31, 2014 at 6:37
  • Choosing no version opetion it creats major version 1.0 2.0 3.0 and it does not show overwrite option when i edit properties. It comes when you upload new version of document.
