Combining Revisions from Multiple Authors
INSIDE OUT
Confidential Revisions
The Compare function can also be used as a tool to keep reviewer names, dates, and
times of revisions confidential. If you no longer have an original copy of a document
containing tracked changes, simply create a copy of the document, reject all changes,
and use it as the original. Display the Compare dialog box and select the original and
the revised documents. In the Revised area, in the Label Changes With text box, type
another name, such as Reviewer. This method does not allow you to change the dates
and times of revisions, but all revision dates and times reflect the system date and time
when the Compare function was used. Note that this doesn’t apply to Comments that
might be contained in the documents.
Combining Revisions from Multiple Authors
In contrast, you use Combine to combine, or merge, two or more documents. All
modifications made to the original or revised documents become tracked changes. Unlike the
Compare feature, if the revised document contains tracked changes, these changes appear
as tracked changes in the combined document. All authors are identified and their revisions
are combined into one document. To use the Combine function, use the following steps:
1. On the Review tab, click Compare then click Combine. The Combine Documents
dialog box opens, which looks similar to the Compare Documents dialog box you saw
in Figure 22-9.
In the Original Document area, click the Folder icon to navigate to and select the
original document, or select the document from the drop-down list.
2.
In the Revised Document area, click the Folder icon to navigate to and select the
revised document (or select the document from the drop-down list) and then click
OK.
3.
Note
If you do not see the tri-pane review panel, then on the Review tab, click Show Source
Documents and then click Show Both.
