For each iteration of any given IFU (user manual), my client insists on a
having redline denoting each change from the previous work. They have had
me create these in Acrobat.

That is ostensibly OK. but Acrobat DC Prp has its problems with large docs.
It crashes most every time I switch between Edit and Comment modes.

Not only that, marking these things is absurdly tedious. There is no global
change mechanism, such as being able to mark each change in a product name.
So it's one.at.a.time.at.a.tiime.one.time.at.a.one.time. It takes *far*
more time than does affecting the actual changes in InDesign on the way to
a clean, release-ready IFU in PDF format.

Who among you has a better process?
