Comparing two versions of a document (legal blackline)
Ideally, when you use Compare, the original and the revised document don't contain tracked changes. If either document contains tracked changes, Word treats the documents as though the changes have been accepted and doesn't display them in the comparison document. Additionally, all revisions in the comparison document are attributed to a single author, and you can see what changes have been made to the original document regardless of whether track changes were turned on when modifications were being made. The changes made in the revised document are shown in the original as tracked changes. To compare two versions of one document and view the differences, follow these steps:
On the Review tab, click Compare, and then from the list, click Compare. The Compare Documents dialog box opens.
In the Original document area, click the Folder icon to navigate to and select the original document, or select the document from the drop-down list.
In the Revised document area, click the Folder icon to navigate to and select the revised document, or select the document from the drop-down list.
