Keeps Importing "Review" Item?


I wrote my novel in Scrivener and it exported fine to Word.

Then a friend did edits in Word for my review.

I accepted or rejected half the changes then imported the MS from Word to Scrivener. Now, Scrivener sees the OLD version and not my changes.

I am using Windows 7 and Word 2010. I tried saving the edited version as RTF but that didn’t import correctly either. In Word, I tried changing View and Review options but that didn’t fix it.

Please help. I’m stumped.

I believe there is a command in Word that will make all changes permanent, so that they are no longer represented as a data “layer” in the document, but are literal text. That is what you need, since Scrivener cannot read from the revision layer.
