Viewing MS Word document track changes in OpenOffice

Office suite expert Solveig Haugland walks a reader through viewing Microsoft Word document changes in OpenOffice.

Is there a way to view the track changes of a Microsoft Word document I received and opened in OpenOffice?

Yes. Choose Edit > Changes > Show.

You should then see all the changes that have been made. You can accept or reject changes by choose Edit > Changes > Accept or Reject, and you'll see a list of all the edits.

Double-click each and it will be highlighted in the document. Use the buttons in the window to accept or reject the changes.
