Compare Revisions

You can view and compare two revisions of:

  • Components such as topics and informaltopics

  • Text fragments (paragraphs).

For example, let's say that during a contribution assignment, an engineer made changes to a paragraph. After the assignment, you can view the history of the paragraph and compare the engineer's revision to a revision from before the contribution assignment.

When you compare revisions, Paligo highlights the differences between the two revisions. You then have the option to keep the current version or revert to an earlier version if you prefer.

You can compare different revisions of components, such as topics and informaltopics. You choose which revisions you want to compare and then Paligo shows you the differences.

  1. Find the component in the Content Manager. Select its options menu ( ...) and then select Revisions.

  2. In the Compare column, select the buttons for the two revisions you want to compare.

  3. Select Compare versions.

    The comparisons are shown side-by-side.

    The differences are color-coded:

    • blue means changed text

    • green means added text

    • red means removed text.

You can compare the different revisions of a text fragment (paragraph). When you compare, Paligo shows you the differences between the two revisions.

  1. Open the topic that contains the text fragment and then select the text fragment.

  2. In the element structure menu, select the para element and then select Text > Show history.

Tip

You can use the language selector in the bottom corner to switch to translated revisions of the text fragment. For example, if your source language is English and you have a Swedish translation of a paragraph, you can switch to Swedish and compare Swedish revisions of the text.
