Revisions management - request to add "Hide" for deleted text

Post by sg2 » Mon Jan 07, 2019 1:41 pm

Hello,

In order to make large documents with a lot of changes (much) more readable, MS Office / Word / Revisions / Options offers to hide deleted text.

This option is missing in TextMaker. Could you please consider adding it?

PS: neither LibreOffice nor WPS Office offer this feature.

Regards,

Hiding text is explained in the PDF manual starting from page 76.

Hello,
Thank you for the hide text hint.

Would it be possible to add this formatting option (hide) to the list of formatting options applicable to deleted text in revision management?

It was my original question, and this is a feature I would really need in order to consider business deployment in my organization.

For the record, it makes heavily revised documents much more readable to just retain inserted text in a specific color, and revision bars in the side margin; and hide deleted text. Using a specific color for deleted text, or strike through, makes large heavily edited documents mostly unreadable.

Regards,

Thank you so much.

None of the MS office alternatives have this feature, which is a must within organizations heavily relying on revision markings for large documents.
