Re: MSWord file in svn - change properties on commit

Thanks for answer. I guess, that my question wasn't clear... ;)

My requirement is simple:

I want to have in MSWord (DOC , RTF) informations: its version, author,
date, log info from SVN REPO.
Adding keywords in MSWord document destroys the doc. See mail from
2005-07-14: "Fixed-width keyword expansion" and further mails (Jani,
Xevious - is there any example for yours fixed length keyword and saving
in RTF ???).

My problem is simple too:

I don't know SVN, so I'm asking if there anybody had the same problem.
Maybe I could have a script on the client side (eg. TortoiseSVN)... i
really don't know.

Please help me.
