Yeah, the Track Changes isn't completely useless, but depending on the edits, it can get in the way. A lot of what I edit is style changes, typos, rewording, etc. Usually when I'm done with a document, there's a solid column in the margin of changes. I am more productive with Comments, but I can see...

Sort of. There's two components to Words "revision" tool. The one you are referring to is the one where every single change, addition, deletion, what have you is noted in the right hand column. You're right, it's annoying as all get out. The other one that most of us are referring to is "comments." ...

It seems overly complicated, and besides, more often than not I'd want the comments to print.

Really, Word just does it damn near perfectly.

Another option--and this is what my wife/partner and I do when working together on translations--is to use a Comment character style. We each have our own color-coded style. This puts the comments in line with the text, which could be an advantage or a disadvantage in your case. We also have a simp...

I would like to nominate myself for "Idiot of the Year." I didn't even SEE the "hide extension" choice in "save." I know Word comments are an oft-asked for feature, and you're correct, Word is the only one that does it. Boy are they easy to get used to. I guess the only real remaining "dunno" is if ...

Wow, I certainly didn't expect this to spark such a lively debate. To rmark: I can see the regional issue, but as offbyone said, having it in the regional settings would work. I can't imagine any word in any language having two concurrent dashes, but I've been surprised before. To midwinter: Yeah, t...

Hmm. ok, I had performed that action, but it didn't keep. After re-setting it, it kept, but still didn't work. After reading your description, it's unlikely it will work that way. How Word does it is if I type in "I prefer red balls--green ones just don't do it for me" after I've typed in "green" it...

Any way to auto-complete an em dash?

I'm addicted to in Word hitting "--" and having it fill in the em dash. Any way to do that in Nisus?

Unfortunately, the lack of this feature is a deal-breaker for me. I'm constantly using Comments in Word to make notes as I work.
