I am using changes package to track modifications to a LaTeX documents, but found simply wrapping \begin{itemize}\end{itemize} with \added command doesn't work. It works fine if I wrap the contents of each itemize separately.

    The docs say (section "Limitations") that you can't use \added to wrap tables and figures and that it sometimes fails when you wrap more than one paragraph. I think it fails with item lists for the same reason. As a workaround, the docs suggest to put the multi-paragraph content into an external file and then use \added{\include{...}}.

Having had issues with embedded environments using the changes package, I have found that the following works for \replaced and \added.

Use \protect\input{<the external file name>}. \include{...} provides a new page, which is not useful in a page of text.


Including multiple paragraphs seems to work if they are separated by \\ \\ instead of a blank line, as follows :

\added{para 1
\\\\ \\\\
para 2
\\\\ \\\\
para 3}
