Learn how to the Track Changes feature and its related preferences.
- [Voiceover] InDesign's Track Changes feature…lets you see in the story editor…changes made by you and other editors…and decide whether to accept…or reject those changes.…Before we look at the Track Changes panel,…I want to point out that if you place…a Word document, you have the option…of retaining any tracked changes…in that document.…From the File menu, I'll choose Place.…I will scroll down to this document,…Monospaced Fonts.…
Now in order to see the option…to include or remove any tracked changes…in this document, I need to check…Show Import Options.…I'm actually going to hold the Shift key,…which is equivalent to showing the import options…just for this document.…That brings me to my Word Import Options,…and this is the option…that I'm talking about right here.…So that is checked.…I'll click OK.…I have a loaded type cursor.…I'm now going to auto flow this text…by holding down the Shift key…and clicking at the top…of the first column.…
So you wouldn't know it…to look at the document in layout view,…but there are some tracked changes…
Author and designer Nigel French explains how to set up an "editorial workspace" that puts the tools you need most at close reach. He then moves on to selecting and editing text in InDesign: changing case, adding special characters, formatting lists, and inserting breaks. He also shows how to use the Story Editor, Notes, and the Track Changes feature, and explains how InDesign documents are constructed, so that you can edit them with more confidence.
