I know there's been some conversation about Track Changes vs. Snapshots in Scrivener—this isn't about that.

Two separate issues:

1. When you import a word doc into Scrivener that has tracked changes, all of those tracked changes are instantly committed.
2. If someone has replied to a comment within the word file, only the most recent comment will show up in the Comments panel.

Are there any fixes in the works for these issues, or any good workarounds? Both of these issues could create major issues in the editorial process. I'm scared to know how many comments and suggested changes I may have missed over the years because I wasn't aware of this limitation. Since I don't have Word, my process has always been to drag my feedback docs into into the binder and look at the comments from there.

Thank you,
