I'm writing a paper together with my supervisor and would like to have a more sophisticated version control than
*_291112_NEW_NEW_revised1.doc files. My supervisor is a non-computer person will never ever use
git and loves MS Word. I'm therefore looking for an alternative to Word (I need commenting on text passages!) which stores the files as clean text (Markup for formating is fine), so I'm able to put them under version control on my side. I'm aware that
git can also handle binary files, but I'd prefer the cleaner way of looking at the contents directly.
If there's a way to automatically extract the text from word files, I'm fine with that too for now.
