Getting to viewing the differences between a current version of the page and its edit history.
There are a few questions that need to be answered:
How do you wish to view the differences?
- Google docs shows the whole page, highlighting differences between an edit and the previous one.
- Dropbox paper by default shows the edit only with a bit of context around it, highlighting differences between an edit and the previous one.
So, do you need to see:
- The whole page with differences highlighted, OR only the edited parts with context around it (±3 lines).
- The changes between the current page and the chosen edit, OR the changes between the selected edit and the one before it?
UI or Export format?
Viewing the changes exactly as we show content in the pages right now is challenging and would require more development time than just showing differences in, for example, how exports look like. Do you need to view differences as they show in the editor, or would seeing differences as they are in exports is fine?
Excited to get this feature available! Let me know your ideas.
