Track changes functionality and roles

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

Enabling track changes helps you identify changes made to your document, and accept or reject those changes. For shared documents, you can enable co-authors to accept or reject changes.

The options in the Review menu are enabled based on the role of the user viewing the document. The options to accept or reject changes, and to move among changes are enabled only after the first change to the document.

Reviewers can view the document along with the changes. Readers can only read the document as it appears in the Show Original state.

Track changes behavior during Find/Replace operation

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

For find and replace operations performed after Track Changes is turned on for the document, the replaced text is treated as updated text, and the found text is treated as deleted text. The Find operation works on both deleted and updated text.

When deleted text is replaced, the replaced text is treated as updated text.

Copying content when track changes is enabled/disabled

Available for: Adobe Story Plus

Copy-paste/cut-paste behavior when track changes is enabled:

  • Inserted text is copied as new text.

  • Deleted text is not copied.

  • Formatted text is copied as new text. The formatting is retained.

Copy-paste/cut-paste behavior when track changes is disabled:

  • Inserted text is copied without markup, and is not tracked.

  • Deleted text is copied without markup, and is not tracked.

  • Formatted text is copied, and the formatting is retained. The copied text is not tracked.

Note:

When you move a scene, the scene at the original location is treated as deleted content. The scene at the new location is treated as inserted content. Ensure that you accept/reject changes at both these locations.

The copy-paste behavior works across Adobe Story documents. When you copy to an editor outside Adobe Story, the text is copied without markup. The copy-paste behavior, however, remains the same.
