Merging modified documents
The processes discussed to this point are effective when you have one reviewer at a time. Sometimes, however, multiple reviewers all return edited versions of a document at the same time. In this case, it may be quicker to review all of these changes at once, rather than one review at a time. For this purpose, you can merge documents in Writer.
To merge documents, all of the edited documents need to have recorded changes in them.
- Open one copy.
- Click Edit > Changes > Merge Document and select and insert another copy of the document to be merged with the first.
- After the documents merge, the
Accept or Reject Changes dialog box opens, showing changes by more than one reviewer. If you want to merge more documents, close the dialog box and then repeat step 2.
- Repeat until all copies are merged.
All recorded changes are now included in the open copy. Save this file under another name.
