Comparing or Combining Documents
INSIDE OUT
Comments, Revisions, and the Document Inspector
You can remove all comments and revisions by using the Document Inspector. To do so,
on the File tab, click Check For Issues in the Info tab, and then click Inspect Document.
Ensure that the Comments, Revisions, Versions, And Annotations check box is selected,
and then click Inspect. If the Document Inspector finds any leftover comments or
revisions, you can click Remove All to accept all revision marks and delete all comments.
Keep in mind that when you use the Remove All option in the Document Inspector
to delete all revisions and comments, you cannot use the Undo command to retrieve
the revisions and comments. If you suddenly realize you do not want to remove the
revisions and comments after you click Remove All, your only recourse is to close the
document without saving changes. Therefore, always save your documents before you
run the Document Inspector!
Comparing or Combining Documents
The Compare feature in Word 2010 can save you a lot of time and trouble when you want
to see at a glance what the difference might be between two similar files. Perhaps a
colleague reviewed a file and made a few changes, but you aren’t sure whether they conflict
with changes you’ve made in the meantime. Compare can help you resolve this.
And when you’re finished comparing the documents, you can easily combine them to get
the most recent changes all put together in one nice, neat file.
Note
A character-level change occurs when a change is made to a few characters of a word,
such as when only the case of the first letter is changed. At the word level, the entire
word is shown as a revision; at the character level, only the letter is shown as a revision.
The following section of the chapter describes comparing and combining documents after
changes have been made to a document.
