Is it possible to automatically accept all tracked changes in Overleaf? Currently, I am only able to accept changes one by one in the review tab.

It would also be useful to learn if you can automatically resolve all comments.

Thank you!

    Have you considered directing your question to the Overleaf Helpdesk? I hear their LaTeX support staff is top-notch.

From the Overleaf Helpdesk:

While there isn't an option to accept all changes across an entire project, you can accept all tracked changes in a section, or in an entire file, by selecting the section of text - the "Accept All" and "Reject All" options will appear in the Review pane - this will appear near the top of the selected section.

Because these options appear near the top of the section, it can happen that these options become hidden if you have the Track Changes menu expanded (it might be behind the dropdown list). Just collapse this list if it is hiding the options.

Note also, that if you make a copy of the project, the new project will have all the changes as if all were selected and accepted.

    This was extremely helpful, the correct procedure based on this is Ctrl + A then on the top right there is a "Accept/Reject All" option after everything is highlighted!

  • It's completely bonkers that they hide it under the track changes context menu...

I figured out a hack: keep the tracking mode on, control-A select the entire document, control-X cut all, and control-P paste all. Now Overleaf will consider the whole document as one single change. Accept it. Turn off tracking mode. Done.
