Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Tracking changes, part of Creating Long Documents with InDesign.
There are times when you may need to keep track of changes made to your…documents made by everyone in your workflow and either approve or reject them.…Let's see how to do that.…The ability to track changes has been around for a long time in InCopy, but…it finally made its way into InDesign with CS5 and the debut of the Track Changes panel.…And I can show that panel by choosing Window > Editorial > Track Changes.…With this panel, you can see and approve or reject changes made to a story by…anyone in your editorial workflow.…
Track Changes is limited to text edits only, so I can't know if another InDesign…user moved or resized a frame, for example.…But if anyone adds or deletes or moves text, those changes can be made visible…in the Story Editor in InDesign or the Galley and Story views in InCopy.…To track changes, first put your cursor in a text frame and click on the button…on the left of the panel to track changes.…This will enable tracking changes just for this story.…If you want to enable tracking changes for the whole document, go to the panel…
