John and Sharon described differing experiences using the Compare feature:

It depends on the extent of the changes. If you change just a word or two,
Compare pinpoints the revision. If you rewrite a paragraph, combine two
paragraphs, etc., Compare sometimes flags a larger section than was actually

We use Compare to update translations of our manuals. We compare the new
English version to the old, previously translated English and send the
revision-marked copy to the translators.
