- Track Changes
How-To Tech Description:
Learn to use Track Changes and Comments to collaborate on document content, and learn how to use the Compare feature to reveal changes between document versions. Since not all document co-creation is friendly, we’ll also show you how to ascertain when others have attempted to conceal changes.
Once you’ve seen the benefit of receiving editing feedback in Track Changes, you’ll wish you could get feedback that way for everything you write! Wouldn’t you love a friend who was always available, never tired, and gave good advice on how to streamline your sentences and get rid of the clutter? WordRake is your new best friend. At any time of day or night, our software will edit your writing for clarity and brevity, using in-line edit suggestions. Your raked document will look just like a smart colleague with an English degree has revised your work using Track Changes. Then you decide which edits you like. WordRake is available for Microsoft Word and Outlook on Windows, or for Microsoft Word only on Mac. Try it free for 7 days.
