not with the scripts, no.

No, sorry.

'live' conflict resolving during a merge only works with text files.
Your office files are binary.
You have to use "resolve later" for those files during a merge or chose
mine or theirs.

If you chose "resolve later", then after the merge has finished you can
then use the edit-conflicts function (which then uses the merge script).

I don't even have MS office installed, so I definitely won't be able to
help you improve the scripts.
