I am working with a group where each of us is separately reviewing documents. Track Changes is the ideal Writer tool, except that reviewers need to be anonymous. How can I hide my identity altogether or use a pseudonym?
Remove information from
You can remove/change the user info from
options. The user identification entered there will be attached to subsequently recorded changes. If there is nothing there, the change will be anonymous.
You can also have a separate app entry point for anonymous use by creating a separate profile folder for that. See the
env command line option.
Note that “last changed by user” may be a filesystem property for the file, so to ensure anonymity on shared filesystems you may need additional precautions.
My thanks for both answers, which were very helpful.
