View track change information

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

Adobe® Story uses special formatting called markup to identify and track changed content.

  • For information on changed text, move your mouse over the changed text. A tool tip providing information about the author, and the timestamp associated with the change is displayed.



    View tracked changes

  • To view changes based on authors and elements, enable the Track Changes toolbar using View > Track Changes Toolbar. Use the options in the Changes By and In Elements menu to view changes based on author and to specific elements.

    Changes By

    Only those changes made by the selected user are displayed. The color used to mark changes made by other collaborators is hidden.

    In Elements

    Only those changes related to the selected elements (Scene Heading, Action, Dialogs) are displayed.

    When you choose the dialog for a character in the menu, changes in the Dialog element for that character are used to display changes. Changes to the Parenthetical element are not considered.

    You can use the two menus as a combination. For example, you can choose to view changes made by an author, say John, to the Action element in a script. Only those changes made by John pertaining to Action element are displayed.

  • Rows or paragraphs containing changes are highlighted with a gray background.

  • To detect text and paragraphs with only formatting changes, move your mouse over the text or paragraph. The words “Text Formatted”/“Paragraph Formatted” appear in the tool tip. Author and timestamp info is not displayed for text and paragraphs with only formatting changes.



    View formatted text

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

Perform one of the following steps.

  • Select View > Track Changes Toolbar to view the toolbar. Use the options in the toolbar to navigate among changes in the document.

Note:

The options to navigate among changes are enabled only after the first change to the document.

Accept/Reject changes to text

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

When you accept changes, the latest change to the content is retained. All markup is removed. When you reject a change, the initial state of the content is retained. Changes to the initial content, including any markup, are removed.

Multiple formatting changes applied to a chunk of text is treated as a single change. When you reject a change in this case, all the applied formatting changes are rejected. For example, if you have applied the Bold and Italic style to a piece of text, rejecting the change removes both the applied style formats.

Perform one of the following steps to accept/reject changes.

  • Select View > Track Changes Toolbar. Use the options in the toolbar to navigate among changes in the document, and to accept or reject them.

  • Move your mouse over the changed text. Use the Accept/Reject options in the tooltip to accept or reject the change. The options vary based on the type, and the number of changes.



    Tool tip displaying the accept and reject options for changed content

  • To accept a change, click within the changed text, and select Review > Accept Change. To accept all changes to a document, select Review > Accept All Changes.

  • To reject a change, click within the changed text, and select Review > Reject Change. To reject all changes to a document, select Review > Reject All Changes.

Note:

The options to accept or reject changes are enabled only after the first change to the document.

View content without track changes (markup)

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

Perform one of the following steps.

  • Select View > Track Changes Toolbar. To see how a document would look if you accepted all changes, select Show Final. To see how a document would look if you rejected all changes, select Show Original.

  • To see how a document would look if you accepted all changes, select Review > Show Final. To see how a document would look if you rejected all changes, select Review > Show Original.

The markup text is hidden in both the cases, and the visible content is displayed as normal text.
