## Using git-latexdiff to track changes in tex-file graphically

It’s been a while since I started using git. The version control system helps to track changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people. Composing a manuscript is nothing unlike developing a program. If multiple authors work on the same manuscript, git can be very helpful to avoid conflicts. If you are the only author, git can help you to document what has been changed since the last commit or put your advisor’s comment in another branch.
