When it comes to writing my books for publishers I’ll be sticking with Word for the foreseeable future. The main reason is that’s what the publishers want, but the other is Word’s track changes feature which is an absolute necessity when dealing with co-authors and editors. However, at work we’re using Google Drive so I’ve been looking into some of the deeper tools available there and I’ve discovered that Google Drive also has a track changes feature, named “See revision history” which can be found under the file menu or by typing CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-g.
I will say that see revision history if more like stepping through the history of a Wikipedia page, than Word’s track changes, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.
