If this is true then it is very unfortunate ... one of the most useful types of information you disseminate to consumers of your documentation is to be able to easily allow them to see what you have changed throughout the document, without them having to keep an older copy of the document themselves and manually figure out what is different. I regularly email out Word Docs with track changes on to provide this benefit to the readers of material that I author. I understand online single-source collaboration throws a wrench in this, but not necessarily a reason to remove this capability.

The simple solution to this (from my perspective as a user) would be to provide two more access levels "Can view and see versions" and "Can comment and see versions".

Thanks. John
