Accept changes in opened Word document


getting back to all my previous questions, I stumbled over one issue while performing my migration tests:

Using your just recently added IDocumentVisitor interface I can enumerate Word documents fine. The only problem is that I might receive Word documents that have been amended (of course) but the editor kept the option “Track Changes” active and I am stuck with paragraphs of text holding the old text and all changes that were applied.

Could you possibly add a way to get rid of changes, aka “AcceptChanges” or possibly give me a pointer to how I might get around this?

Thanks a lot in advance


We have this feature on our task list somewhere, not yet sure when it can be scheduled. Does sometime in December sound ok?

No worries, this sounds fine to me. It’s just that I post everything that I find during my migration tests.
