Printing Only Changed Pages

Sunil has a Word document of 100 pages. Some pages have changes on them, marked with Track Changes. Sunil wonders if it is possible to print only those pages that have changes on them.

The short answer is no, you cannot print just those pages automatically. You can manually determine which pages have changes and then choose to print just those pages by entering the page numbers in the Print dialog box, but that can get tedious.

An alternative to printing only pages with markup is to print a list of the markup. This provides you with a document that lists every change and the page on which the change occurs. To print such a list, display the Print dialog box and use the Print What drop-down list to choose "List of Markup."

A better alternative to printing the markup list - a poor feature at best - is to accept all changes in one copy of the document and reject all changes in another one. Then compare the two copies using a good comparison program like Workshare Compare, which allows the user to print changed pages only.
