comment “Track changes” in LaTeX
FWIW, most of the comments after gt6989b's comment SEEM to me more of a discussion about 'What is the best diff tool to use when comparing two different versions of the same latex documents?'. I have created a chat room for this topic. Would it be possible if we can continue in the chatroom? (I would definitely like to hear about the various pros and cons of using different diff tools on latex source!)

comment “Track changes” in LaTeX
This is unrelated to downvotes. I just want to understand how the changes package works. The Changes package gives you a way to manually annotate an existing document with changed, deleted, etc. Each individual changed part of the document needs to be manually identified and then manually annotated (by further changing the document)?

comment “Track changes” in LaTeX
@gt6989b, Yep I already saw the answer that talks about latexdiff (and I upvoted it). I decided to answer because latexdiff only allows you to diff between two versions... but does not help you keep track of the different versions. My answer focuses on both using diff AND keeping track of different versions.

comment When generating html, how do you specify image size?
I will check out your link. I'm only a beginner/intermediate latex user so... that answer was very complex. I have to change an env config file... i also have to compile different... right now i compile via htlatex.bat FILE.tex where htlatex.bat is from here.

comment Methods to edit column order in an existing LaTeX table?
Definitely +1 for using "column edit mode" in your text editor. I think column edit mode would be faster than the awk/sed regex because it would take me at least 5 minutes to create from scratch the above regex... when column edit would be done in 2 minutes.

comment New line after paragraph?
@TEX.SE admins -->IMO this is not an exact duplicate because the linked to question solves the problem for non-standard requirements... where as this question assumes a standard document without any weird TOC requirements. Also this question has a simpler solution and is more elegant GIVEN regular TOC requirements.

comment Fast PNG embedding using pdflatex
Using pdf images instead of png lowers your compilation from 18s to 1s? Wow. I wish I had known this for the last 50 page paper I wrote ... so much time wasted on png inclusions.
