Tracking Changes Over Time

Nisus Writer is a word processor for Macs and a recent update introduced a new icon for tracking changes to a document over time:

Nice touch, don’t you think? :)

    There are gaps in that icon!  Show me the transitional pixels!   :-)

    It’s so iconic, it a shame it’s scientific bunk.

    • gilraen

      It is, but it’s still easily recognizable.  And the people like us who realize it’s bunk don’t need the reminders that change-over-time is fact to be accepted.  Those who need reminders won’t care if it’s not quite accurate.

  • OverlappingMagisteria

    They even programmed it so that if it detects that you’re a creationist, it limits the number of changes tracked so that you can only make microchanges to your document, since macrochanges are impossible.

    And it also fits because usually when you write a rough draft of something, it looks like something that was written by a chimp :)

  • The Other Weirdo

    Would’ve been better if the last part of that icon was some Eldritch Abomination, which is what most documents turn into over time.

  • rejistania

    Epic! Especially as I expect very few creationists to use an OS with a kernel named Darwin.
