Reply to: Toggling of Track ChangesNovember 20, 2014 at 8:44 pm
If you upgrade to XMetaL Author Enterprise or XMetaL Author Essential version 9 (current release) you will have the feature from your initial description.
In 9, an option to toggle this is listed on the View menu as “Show Change Tracking” or “Hide Change Tracking”. Pressing Ctrl+Shift+R toggles it as well.
For your Edit: what you have done is likely the best way to do it. I don't know how to query Active Directory using script, but you would need to load a control to do it (almost for sure). Maybe something like the following, except that I don't know if there is anything that let's you get Active Directory info. http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php/topic,27
