5m. Editing with Coauthors

The Collaborative Web Editor allows you to edit using its Track Changes feature. You can also embed comments into files to aid in the collaboration process.

Note: If the file is later downloaded and opened on a local machine, these edits and comments will remain, and will display in all applications that support Track Changes and commenting (for example, Microsoft Office products).

  1. To turn on Track Changes, click the Track Changes button found at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. All changes made by you and coauthors will display in bubbles, allowing other users to accept or reject these changes.

  2. To add a comment, highlight the appropriate portion of the file, right-click the highlighted content, and then select Add Comment. A pop-up bubble displays, allowing you to type a comment.

  3. To view all comments in the document, or to respond to an existing comment, click the Comments button in the left-hand navigation bar. You can use the toolbar to edit, delete, or mark a comment as resolved.
