Setting Options for Tracking Changes
Setting Options for Tracking Changes
The default behavior of underlining text additions, striking out deletions, and so on works
well for most people—but you’re not stuck with it. You can select different ways of marking
(bold text for additions, for example), specify which color to use for edits you make, and
select which types of changes you want to track. (For example, you might choose not to
mark changes to formatting.) You make all these choices in the Track Changes Options
dialog box, which is shown in Figure 9-8. To open this dialog box, on the Review tab, click the
arrow below Track Changes and then click Change Tracking Options.
Figure 9-8 When By Author appears in a Color box, Word uses a different color for each
reviewer’s changes.
Another option you might want to set is one that forces reviewers to turn on change
tracking. This prevents them from inadvertently making changes to your document that might
be difficult to spot when the document comes back to you. To enable this restriction, follow
these steps:
1. Click the Review tab and then click Restrict Editing in the Protect group. This opens
the Restrict Formatting And Editing pane.
2. Select the check box under Editing Restrictions. Then select either Comments or
Tracked Changes (which also allows reviewers to add comments).
