. First, if you're using Word (presumably other software too),
. the choice
. of how to display the edits (color, format, etc.) can be set
. independently by each user. If you like fluorescent pink
. edits, you can
. probably coerce your software into showing you edits in this manner.
.
. Second, you can (in Word) toggle quickly between concealing and
. displaying the tracked changes. This lets you (respectively)
. see only
. the results of the edits and how you got to those results. Sometimes
. authors are much happier just seeing the results, without having to
. wade through all the red (or chartreuse or whatever) ink.
. That's doubly
. true if they can reveal the edits only when something looks wrong.

Frame zealots rise up! ;)

We create our documentation in FrameMaker and publish in .pdf and other
formats. I'll take handwritten comments or online comments in .pdf, but I
/never/ use Word.
