This feature enables the users to simultaneously work on a different version of the same document and compare the modifications made in real time. The document that is under the concern of an editor actually has real-time version available instantaneously and you are free to choose the modified or the most suited version of the document, while tracking changes and
previewing modifications in real time.

While exploring different functionalities of MS Word 2013, sometimes you may experience that the real-time preview of modifications is no more available.
