How to downgrade AUR packages by pamac?

I opened the setting “enable downgrading” in pamac.

But I want to know if AUR packages can be downgraded as well.

Also, I never found a downgrade button on pamac and I do not know how to downgrade packages.

Due to the update of grpc is sometimes too slow on testing branch my qv2ray-dev-git will break dependencies, I am founding a solution better than switching to unstable branch.

If the version on the server is older than your currently installed package, it will be downgraded to the repo version.

(And with older, I mean a lower version number)

so can I manually downgrade official or AUR packages?

No. Its automatic if the maintainer decides the version needs to be downgraded.

Arch package are usually stable - and there is no better solution if you want to run on Arch package level - which I have done for more than 5 years - no major incidents.

AUR packages can be rebuilt to any given point in time - suffice you know which tag or commit you need to revert to.

But downgrading is generally a bad decision - it should only be used in very specific cases.

you can modify PKGBUILD file and build the package manually

not with Pamac
