I'm trying to find a way to generate a PDF that shows the change tracking markup (i.e. "changes highlighted" view). I can do it with a test document using XSL-FO, but unfortunately that solution won't work for the project, because the real stylesheet uses Styler with some FOSI source edits. Some data points:
* Adding the appropriate elements to the Styler stylesheet gives the desired result in the Editor view.
* Setting $compose::changetracking=active works for every view except the one I want: changeshighlighted. In other words, with that setting, when I select View->Change Tracking->Original and compose, I see the original version of the text; when I select View->Change Tracking->Changes Applied, I see the text with changes applied; but when I select View->Change Tracking->Changes Highlighted, I still get the output as if changes were applied
* Setting $compose::changetracking=changeshighlighted does the same thing, i.e. gives me output as if changes were applied
Has anyone found a configuration that makes Styler output change tracking to PDF (without having to switch the engine to XSL)? If so, what configuration did you use to make it work? Thanks.
Now that you mention it, I also remember hearing that change tracking would be more configurable in new releases. Alas, our target platform for this project is 5.3, so I can't take advantage of those most recent innovations.
Have you looked at the most recent versions of Editor / PE? I thought that this was made much more simple in something really recent. Maybe it was a "future" thingy I heard about at PTC/User in June and it's not been released yet.
