For years I have used Word 2010 compare document feature and could see visually what had been deleted with strikeout and what had beeen added in red text. It was extremely helpful.

In Word 365 Compare Document, there are so many windows and yet there is no visual info. I feel I have to Do It Myself. I just see the narrative version describing a word being deleted, etc. Then I have to go to the windows on the right to waste time locating the particular spot myself.

How is this easier?????? Am I missing something? I can't believe there isn't a feature to turn on the strikeout and red text.

This is just one more feature in 365 that has taken steps backwards, so that I'm finding decreased my productivity.

And why couldn't Microsoft have made it possible to compare two open documents, without having to browse to find them?

Thank you.

The "Compare" feature still exists. Just requires a few steps.

Thank you.

I do see the feature still exists, but how do I get it to show strike-out and red? I'm finding it fairly useless as-is in 365.
