Is there a way for me to copy a bunch of stuff that has recorded

... I want everything including the changes copied over.
The rationale is that I have lots of documents that have been edited
by different people. I would prefer moving these all to one and then
actually looking at the changes and either accepting or not accepting
the modified stuff.
That's what I thought you meant!
If you have sent the same text to multiple editors and the only
changes made to each copy are recorded changes, you can do this by
opening one document and then using Edit | Changes > | Merge
Documents... multiple times to merge each of the other documents. You
can then, as you desire, look at all the suggested changes together
when deciding to accept or reject any of them.
But this works only if the documents differ only in recorded changes.
To make this work properly, you need to set the original document to
record changes (Edit | Changes > | Record) and then to protect this
setting using Edit | Changes > | Protect Records... and entering a
password *before* distributing your original. Without this password,
the various editors will not be able to disable change recording, so
all the edited documents will come back in a state where the above
technique will work.
I trust this helps.
Thanks! Going to try it out today :)
