It would be handy to have a overwork mode like it is
present in M$ Word. So e.g. if I want to correct a
document for someone and I want him to know what I've
corrected, the changed parts should be marked up. In
addition it should be possible for each change which
was made to accept or to reject it and to accept or
reject all changes in a document.

    Latex is text-based. There is no easy way to do that in TXC
    and retain compatibility to other environments. You might
    want to try out CVS or subversion.

    Nevertheless, I use some LaTeX macros for this. I append
    them to this request - so you can download and use them. You
    need the package "color" for this to work. Simply include
    the file in your document, like:

    \usepackage{color}
    \begin{document}
    \input{textrevisions}

    I lower the priority of this request, since we are not able
    to provide such a feature in the near future. And most
    people simply use existing tools for doing that.

    Btw, "overwork" is a funny translation of "berarbeiten".

    Take a look at changebar package, and/or a decent version
    control system (svn/cvs/...) and there is little need for
    such a feature..
