Is there a way to manage the change tracking options for Word documents displayed in Collaborator?

When a Microsoft Word file is uploaded with tracked changes, the change tracking options show differently within Collaborator. For example, when a document is edited with Change Tracking enabled, inserted text is displayed in the color blue. After uploading the file to Collaborator for a review, the inserted text is colored red within the tool. We frequently perform peer reviews on changes to very large documents. It would be nice to be able to control the change tracking options at some level.

  • Hi, 


    Collaborator does not support "Microsoft Word Track Changes" feature. The reason behind that, is that "Track Changes" is dynamic format, and it interferes with Collaborator formats. We recommend that you turn off track changes in Microsoft Word before you upload the document into Collaborator.
