Change Marking

Track changes and compare versions

Help your readers concentrate on the right part of your document

It’s a common reader requirement to see where the changes are between one document version and another.

Use Word Compare

One way of comparing documents is using the Word ‘Compare’ function. Just select ‘Compare Versions’ from the eaDocX Document Management settings.

Choose the two versions you’d like to compare, and use Word ‘Compare’ to create a new document which highlights the differences. Or you can open the documents manually, and use Word Compare.

Use eaDocX Change Marking

You can also get a view of what’s changed in an eaDocX document by generating the document using the ‘Change Mark’ function.  This works by looking at the ‘last updated’ timestamp which EA updates each time you change anything about an element.

When you have Change Marking on, eaDocX will look at the timestamp of each element as it is printed, and compare it with a date which you select.  If the EA timestamp is greater than the one you chose, eaDocX will colour the relevant element text to match whatever you have specified.

The change mark date and color can also be added to the Document Information section making it easy for your readers to spot the changes.
