Hi, Avraham.

I manage a group of documents on SharePoint. We treat minor versions as
unpublished drafts. Only the major versions are published.

When someone has a document checked out to update it, others cannot see the
changes until those changes are both saved and published Another person
opening the document while it is checked out would not see the redlines and
comments, but only the previous published version. I'm not sure if that
is something our SP team set up or if it is native to SP. (We are on SP
2013 right now, if that makes a difference.)
