I have a document that is +2k and it’s all tables. I use change bars to track changes. Q – Does FM note what changed when it assigns a change bar? Do I always have to use 'Track Changes'? In Word, it will have a comment when a change has happened.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about how to use a particular piece of software. The online community forums and help documents are the place to find the answer to this question. Jul 13, 2017 at 19:38

    I disagree about it being off topic. There are dozens if not hundreds of Scrivener questions here. FrameMaker questions are equally on topic. But I do agree this may not be the best forum, given that there are forums dedicated to FrameMaker.

    Framemaker is a specialist tool used by technical writers; it's not like MS Word or Notepad. This is on-topic here, same as the Scrivener questions. Jul 13, 2017 at 21:44

    Agreed that this is on-topic, but feel free to pop over to the meta thread on this and comment/vote. Jul 13, 2017 at 22:18

    I had no idea there was a Framemaker forum. I've always post my FM questions on Super User. Thanks, I'll repost on Framemaker forum. Jul 14, 2017 at 20:20

Change bars do not keep a record of what has changed, it's just a visual indication of "something has changed in this line of text".

You'll have to use Track Changes if you want to keep records.
