Re: Version control for Office documents
I've looked for such tools for many years, and haven't found them. In^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
the past, I've used whatever the source control tool the development
team is using, since there's already an existing knowledge, and often
some spare licenses.
The downside of this is that source control tools will treat word files
as binary files, and store the whole file for each change. This goes
back to the proprietary file format issue thread in a sense... As long
as a file format is opaque, there's no way to build such source control,
unless you are the owner of that file format.
If there are version control tools for office - I'd love to know more
