Description richardbaxter 2010-09-24 14:36:02 UTC
The "Compare Documents" title is misleading.

(As a minimum solution, an "Ignore Changes" button is required within the
Compare Documents dialogue box).

The current title "Compare Documents" is very dangerous, and I hesitate
recommending this feature to another person, in case they accidental save the
document after performing a "comparison" (automatic edit). 

The "Compare Documents" Feature by default modifies a document based upon a
comparison, so, if this title is to be maintained, the compare documents feature
should not modify a document by default, but ask the user whether they wish to
modify a document based upon a comparison)

It is not clear whether 'Reject Changes' or 'Accept Changes' button ignores the
changes highlighted during the comparison. An "Ignore Changes" button is
required as a minimum, but preferably, the user interface should first ask the
user whether they wish to edit ones existing document (instead of just
performing a comparison).

Not a P1 issue. Read the guide line.
