Can someone give me a rundown on Word’s “Track Changes” feature when there are multiple editors? I got into this a few months ago, then decided I didn’t need to know it, and now need to get the hang of it quickly.
I think each editor selects a different color, and then makes their changes, and that editor’s initials appear by each change they made. I assume that editor’s colored changes stay with the document when it is e-mailed to other authors for their review?
Then does the final editor (the actual author) go through the entire document and either Accept or Reject each change?
Am I on the right track? Are there other details I should know?
I hope this question makes sense, and really appreciate any help I can get! Thanks!!

Update: My young "guru" friend here in Springfield, someone at the publishing company, and I are experimenting with a mock document to figure this out. Plus, I just e-mailed Smart Computing asking for instructions. I'm thinking maybe each new editor automatically gets a new color, but we're working on it to find all these things out.
