I would like to understand the difference in the results of track changes and compare documents. From my own testing, it looks like most of the changes are shown the same way in track changes and compare documents.
However, in compare documents, sometimes entire paragraphs appear to be treated differently. In those cases, the older version of the paragraph is entirely deleted and the newer version is entirely inserted. Thus, the individual changes aren’t shown. Could this be caused by too many changes in a paragraph?
To see what I am referring to, I have attached an extract. You can see three paragraphs with the edits shown. This is followed by deleted versions of the original three paragraphs. combined Health Benefits Analysis cc 9-11-17b.docx
Should the results of track changes and compare documents look the same? If not, how do they differ? Is there a work-around for the problem of entire paragraphs being changed? Any insights would be appreciated.
