We still cross check changes by simply dragging the previous issued layout as a pdf underneath the floorplans etc in archicad for quick visual check. Toss in a few arrow markers (we don't really use bubbles here) with A or B or C etc depending on which set of changes we are at.
We then type out a block of text on our layouts for those changes where we manually reference those markers: 'room 0.1, this and that changed'.
This works well enough for smaller projects like luxury homes.
I am aware of all the bells and whistles, but it seems like it is better suited for large scale appartment block projects.
I'd share a template or something, but we are on the Dutch localisation, so it is a bit pointless for your version of ArchiCAD, not to mention the language barrier.
