GroupDocs.Comparison allows you to set author of changes name in the resulting document. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Instantiate the Comparer object. Specify a source file path or an input stream.
  2. Call the add method. Specify a target file path or an input stream.
  3. Instantiate the CompareOptions object. Set the WordTrackChanges and ShowRevisions properties to true.
  4. Set author of changes by changing the RevisionAuthorName property.
  5. Call the compare method. Specify the CompareOptions object from previous step.

The following code snippet shows how to change author of changes:

    try (Comparer comparer = new Comparer(sourcePath)) {

        CompareOptions compareOptions = new CompareOptions();
        compareOptions.setRevisionAuthorName("New author");, compareOptions);
