change bars

lines along the edge of text that indicate where changes have been made since the previous version of the text. These are useful when multiple people have been editing a document together and need to track each other’s work. Change bars may be coded in various ways (e.g. by color) to indicate who made the changes or what type of change has been made (insertion, deletion, spelling correction, …).
