Question

How to enable Track Changes at startup?

Answer

There are two ways to enable Track Changes for every document that you open:

  1. You could customize the default options that are used by your authors and set the Track Changes - Initial State option to Always On.
  2. Use an API to toggle the Track Changes state after a document is opened in Author mode:
    // Check the current state of Track Changes 
    boolean trackChangesOn = authorAccess.getReviewController().isTrackingChanges();
    if (!trackChangesOn) {
      // Set Track Changes state to On
      authorAccess.getReviewController().toggleTrackChanges();
    }
