Re: Doubly unusable if he moved the document
Unfortunately $EDITOR edited the word doc with change tracking. Then $EDITOR scribbled on a print-out with red ink. And they want me to make another pass through it and do some structural changes. So my workflow is:
1. Go through change-tracked manuscript in Word (or LibreOffice) doing accept/reject on changes (I get to veto them at this stage).
2. Go through change-tracked MS and PDF scan of hand-annotated print-out, applying handwritten changes. (Thankfully, not as many of them.)
3. Import resulting document into Scrivener and try to rebuild the book's structure and metadata by hand.
4. Retire to the pub, weeping copiously, to consider the possibility of switching to an exciting and fulfilling career as a car park attendant or a tax inspector.
That right there is enough to make me rethink my plans regarding a currently half finished tome I was considering sending off some day. I wasn't real optimistic about actually getting it published anyway, but that just sounds like a nightmare scenario.
