Hey,

I would like to know if there is an easy way to see the changes made by someone in the travelguide. When I click on 'see the changes' I notice some parts are yellow, others are green, some are red. But you have to compare the whole text to see exactly what has been changed/deleted/added or whatever.
Apart from the fact that I don't see the exact difference between the colors, it neither adds to a clear situation.

Thanks!
Michael

The way I understand it (note that I've never even looked at the code for guide, so this is purely from looking at it), the comparisons look on a line by line basis, where a line is defined as "all the text until the next linebreak". (Which often is an entire paragraph's worth of text.)
If new lines were added to a section, they show up in green on the right. If lines were removed, they show up in red on the left. And if the changes made were within a single line (that is, the lines before and after the change are identical), then the color is yellow. (This only works for single lines, though - so if you make two small changes in two adjacent lines, the new lines show up on the right in green, and on the left in red.)

Although after reading this, I understand what you mean, do you think it would be possible to see immediately what have been changed/added/deleted?

I can come up with some recent examples here, but I think you know what I mean.

Like for example in Word, when things are marked, lined, coloured or whatever?
