There is a plug-in for WinMerge to allow it to diff the text from a Word file. I'm not sure whether this is available as part of the normal WinMerge or whether it's part of the paid-for version of CVSNT. Helpfully, Maybe, Richard. -----Original Message----- From: cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org [mailto:cvsnt-bounces at cvsnt.org] On Behalf Of Gerhard Fiedler Sent: 09 February 2007 13:15 To: cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Subject: Re: [cvsnt] cvsnt for word doc version control Tim Chippington Derrick wrote: > If anyone out there has any pointers to tutorials etc on how to set > up to do really useful diffs on word docs, using things like > winmerge, then many here would be very grateful. There are some (mostly commercial) diff applications that can do diffs on Word and Excel files; just google around a bit, I don't have any recommendations, but I know I saw a few over the years. Word itself has a diff and merge feature built in. I use that sometimes: I export or checkout the copy I want to diff or merge under a different name or into a different directory, then go into Word and use its own diff/merge function. There seems also to be the cvsnt server diff plugin API, but I haven't heard of anyone publishing a Word diff plugin.
