Of course I knew better

While traveling, I wanted to write on Witherwilds, at times had to write. But I knew that the files I had uploaded to Google docs were not the most recent and therefore should not be improved tampered with. The updated files were on mana_trini 's laptop back in France.  Did that stop me from tweaking the old files, even knowing the mess I would have waiting for me once I got the newer files in my grubby mitts once again?

If you know me, you know it did not.

So, I tweaked; I added; I subtracted.  I created the Mess of Messes.

And now I must pass X hours finding a doc comparison tool for Mac and then laboriously comparing the files to make sure they are all up to date.  

Joy of joys.
My advice:  Don't try this at home -or- while traveling.  Headaches will ensue for sure.

Amen to that. I've downloaded two programs so far and neither of them is really what I need. :-

There is much to be said for a sturdy old notebook and a pencil. ;)

Of course, I have trouble reading my own handwriting after a while....

Do you guys have Word for Mac? There's the original Word doc comparison function loaded into it already, if you do.

Good luck, and glad you're home!

No. :( I have Pages, and I can't seem to find a similar function... *sigh*
