Comparing reviewed versions
Comparing reviewed versions
If you receive a reviewed copy of your document but the
reviewer didn’t have Track Changes turned on, you can have
Word 2013 mark the changes for you. All you need is the origi-
nal document, the reviewed copy, and the Compare feature.
set up a comparison
1 On the Review tab, in the Compare group, click Compare and
choose Compare in the gallery.
The Compare Documents dialog box opens in its collapsed view.
2 Specify the original document by clicking the down-arrow and
selecting it from the list of recently used documents, or you can
select the folder icon to browse for another file. In the same way,
specify the revised document.
3 If both versions of the document contain markup from the same
reviewer, you can keep the two sets separated by entering a differ-
ent name or other text in the Label Changes With text box.
4 If the dialog box is not expanded, click More.
5 Leave the check boxes selected in the Comparison settings section
for only the types of changes that you want to have marked in the
result of the comparison.
6 Choose whether the comparison will be made character by charac-
ter or word by word. Also choose where the changes will be shown.
You can choose for the changes to appear in one or the other of the
documents being compared, or in a new third document.
7 Click OK.
TIP You can use the Compare feature to create “legal
blacklining” in contracts; this way, each party can see what
revisions were made.
