Hello, WR-L-ers,

Iâm working in FrameMaker (2015) after about five years away from it, so having to relearn a bunch of keyboard shortcuts, etc. And Iâm finding that working with Track Text Edits isnât as straight-forward as Iâd wish in some respects. (Itâs come a long way in the recent versions, but I still find Wordâs more intuitive. Well, maybe not that, but Iâm just so practiced with it that I know what it will do.)

Anyway, is it possible to copy/paste a section that has tracked changes, and still have those tracked changes show up in the new location?

* If I have tracked changes on when I do the copy/paste, the entire chunk of info ends up showing as new (green).
* If tracked changes is disabled, then what ends up copied is the chunk as if Iâd already accepted all the changes, but I want those changes to still be showing in the original red/green.

Thanks for any tips,
