[Solved] Tracking changes with OpenOffice

Postby yijunzhao » Mon Nov 03, 2008 4:41 am

I do not know how to modify like MS Office? I use Openoffice 3.0 English version. I am Chinese who can not express my own meaning with fluent English. In Chinese "openoffice中有追踪修订功能吗?和ms office一样,便于作修订记录的功能。我用的英文版找不见地方呢,还是本身没有这个功能?"

Unless a Chinese reader comes by, we can only guess what you want to do.

You can customise the menus, toolbars, and keyboard from Tools, Customise.

Using Google Translate I get:

openoffice in the Track Changes feature? Ms office and as easy to make amendments to records. I find no place in the English version, or does not have this feature?

I am guessing that he means about using file versions. If so, use: File->Versions...

I don't know much about this feature to be honest apart from where it is...

Hi yijunzhao,

Use "Edit - Changes - Record" and you can easily see the changes made to a document.
Use "Edit -Compare Document" and you can compare the changed document to your original document.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

Ahhhh, I never used that feature. That sounds more like what he was referring to. Looks quite handy to me too, Thanks! :lol:

If you want to add comments to the changes you make, do it with menu Edit>Changes>Comments.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

Thanks to everyone here for my questions. It is helpful for me.

My English is poor for my problems expression. I think I shall like here.

OpenOffice is very nice. However, In China, it is not popular. Chinese people use Windows and MS Office commonly. Pirate is very popular because of the concept of persons. I am Chinese too. I know the software will develop fast in China. Maybe there are lots of expression mistakes.

非常感谢大家的帮助!衷心希望OpenOffice发展得更快更好。
