    I am runing windows XP sp3 and when typing ithe cursor suddenly jumps to a different place on the page such that I find myself typing in the middle of something else. Is it me, or is ther a glitch? Reggie D.
  • 3. Printing disasters
    Sometimes in word, I start a print job, it's going fine and then just stops. Then I select start job, and instead of printing the correct text, just weird symbols start print a bit on each page. Most pages are blank with a few weird gobly gook symbols. I stop job, but just keeps printing, so I have to turn off printer, jamming it up. Why is this happening? And what is best way to cancel out without having to shut down printer ? Thanks. OS 10.4.11 Office 2004

Permanently Remove changes shown w/ Track Changes

using MS Word 2000...

Have a document that has had changes made with Track Changes selected.  Now 
I want to start with the current version of this file with out any changes 
and track only new changes from this point forward.  How do I remove the 
previous data that was changed and the notes/highlites?  I've opened the 
original file, unchecked highlight changes and saved into new file, but when 
I reselected Highlight Changes, the changes were still there.

Please help.   Thanks so much.

With Track Changes turned off, All changes must be either Accepted or
Rejected, then save the file. If you want to resume tracking changes from
there turn the feature back on.

BTW - You've been misdirected into the Mac Word newsgroup:-) For PC Word use
this link to the Windows Office groups:

head over there.

1.How do I permanently disable the "change-tracking/ showing" functi

I'm using MS Word 2003, and want to permanently delete, disable and get rid 
of the Word's "change-tracking" and/or "change-showing" functions (I refer to 
the Word feature/s that indicate deletions with strikethroughs, additions 
with underlines, and also the feature/s that plce document edits in bubbles 
in the margins of the document

2.track changes: showing WHAT has been changed, but not WHO changed

I have a document with track changes of several different persons. We want to 
send it to some people who should see the actual changes but not by WHOM they 
were made.
I called our helpdesk and they said it can't be done (we have version 2003)?
Someone else mentioned 'Deltaview'?
Any idea?

3.Why don't "Change Case" edits show during "Track Changes"

When I make changes in Word documents with "Track Changes" enabled, they all 
show up except when I change the capitalization of a word using the "Change 
Case" function. Is my software corrupt? Is this due to a setting I don't know 
about ([] Don't show Change Case changes) or is this a feature?

4.Track changes show up after accepting changes

Word doc originally created in XP. Has been passed around 
to several people with track changes active. The last 
person to edit the file accepted the changes. That last 
person is not me. When I print the document I can view it 
and print it without track changes. Several people can 
print it and view it and no track changes show up. I 
opened the file in Xp and Word 2000 and when I 
toggled "track changes" on and off nothing happened to 
the doc. That is the way it is supposed to happen right???
However, this file was sent to several other people (not 
sure which version of Word they are running) and when 
they open the file the track changes are there 
automatically. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

5.Showing change bars when tracking changes in Word 2002

I want to show change bars in the right margin for tracked changes but do NOT 
want to show the changes themselves, to indicate that the para has changed.  
When you go to the "track changes, show, options" submenu, you can 
change/turn off the display of insertions and format changes but NOT 
deletions.  Therefore, when you show final with changes the DELETIONS still 
show in the document.  If you do not "show final with changes" then the 
change bars do not show either.  This function USED to be in earlier versions 
of Word (97, 2000).  My Office XP suite and Word 2002 are at the most current 
SP and update status.

How can I show ONLY the change bars?  Is there a workaround?
