Hi, Gunnar: One approach that might work is to use File > Utilities > Document Reports > Word Count to compare the changed documents to their originals.
If the originals aren't available, another approach might be to use Find/Replace to replace all change-bar-marked text with nothing, and compare the word count after the replacement with the word count before. For this method: * Make copies before proceeding * Turn off Format > Text Options > Change Bars > Create Automatic Change Bars * Click the insertion pointer into blank space, then open Edit > Find. Choose Find > Character Format (not Character Tag), turn ON Change Bars (all others should be As Is or display a gray square in their checkbox). Replace With should be empty (no space or other character). Replace All. * Compare the word count after this replacement with the word count before.
