    i am sorry, my mistake, i should have specified office 2007, in which there is no tools/options menu

  • dbake347 Nov 05, 2008

    i have previously been through all the options on the word options dialog and cannot find a selection to modify the above question. I am trying to find if anyone is aware of how to specifically modify that feature. Thanks

  • dbake347 Nov 05, 2008

    i understand how to get to the settings, my problem is that specific setting,,, there does not seem to be an option anywhere in word 2007 to modify it, as there was in office 2003

  • dbake347 Nov 05, 2008

    it may help if i post diagrams

    the first diagram shows an opened word document, it displays comments by default because the review tab has final showing markup as the default, if i change final showing markup to final the comments are not visable

    the second diagram shows the privacy options selected in word, my question is ---- can i make all files to open with the default being final on the review tab

  • dbake347 Nov 06, 2008

    clear the checkbox for "Make hidden markup visible when opening or saving".

    I have already done the above but the document still displays the comments when opening and also 'final showing markup' is still the default in the review tab

    i am thinking there is not a way to prevent this

    1. Click the "Office" button at the top-left of Microsoft Word.
    2. Click "Word Options" at the bottom-right of the menu.

    * Save
    * Advanced

    In the Document-specific section, clear
    the checkbox for "Make hidden markup visible when opening or saving". Just
    remember that it's now up to you to look for markup before you send the
    document to anyone else.

Try Foxit Reader ( Free PDF Reader PDF Viewer Download Foxit Reader ). It lets you open multiple PDF documents in tabs. Just click on the tab to switch between documents. It even lets you add comments, highlights and signatures.

How to protect MS Excel file using password?

In Microsoft Excel, you can protect a single cell, group of cells on a worksheet or an entire workbook by applying password so that unauthorized person can not display as well as modify your document. You can apply two types of password.
Password to open the document:
If it is applied then you have to give the correct password to open the workbook. Otherwise you cannot open the workbook.
Password to modify the document:
If it is applied then you have to give the correct password to modify the workbook. Otherwise your workbook is opened but you cannot modify the workbook. It means that your workbook becomes read-only.

First click on "Tools" menu and select the "Option" from drop down menu.
A windows dialog box will appear, here select the "Security" tab.
Enter first password in "Password to open" text box under "File encryption settings for this workbook" section and second password in "Password to modify" text box (if required) under" File sharing settings for the workbook" section then click "Ok" button of dialog box.

Word 2010.I am typing my references and suddenly they started coming in in red. Then I got one name red underscored. How cAN i CORREC TTHIS AND CONTINUE IN ALL BLACK?

It sounds like you've got the tracking turned on. Try going to the Review tab, then in the Tracking section click Final from the drop down menu (it may default to "Final Showing Markup"). If you want to turn off the tracking, go to the Review > Tracking, then make sure "Track Changes" is not selected (click the downward-facing caret to un-check it).

How to delete markup in word 2010

Is it possible that "Track Changes" is still on? Look on the Review tab of the Ribbon. Make sure Track Changes is off. Then make sure the Display for Review is set to "Final", and try saving and reopening your document. That should work. If not, your last option is to save with a new name, Accept or Reject all review changes, and then save and reopen, etc.

How doI get rid of track changes when editing a

There are various ways to hide the tracked changes or comments — butall the changes that were made while the Track Changes feature wasturned on and all the comments that were inserted remain part of thedocument until they are accepted or rejected (or, in the case ofcomments, deleted).

Word 2007 provides a feature called Document Inspector thatallows you to check any document for tracked changes, comments, hiddentext, and other personal information. To check a document:
  1. Open the document you want to inspect for tracked changes and comments.
  2. Click the Microsoft Office Button default.aspx?assetid=za100771021033, point to Prepare, and then click Inspect Document.
  3. In the Document Inspector dialog box, click Inspect.
  4. Review the inspection results. If Document Inspector finds comments and tracked changes, you are prompted to click Remove All next to Comments, Revisions, Versions, and Annotations.
  5. Click Reinspect or Close.

To get rid of tracked changes and comments, you need to accept or reject the changes and delete the comments. Here's how:
  1. On the Review tab, in the Tracking group, click the arrow next to Show Markup.default.aspx?assetid=za102097011033
  2. Make sure a check mark appears next to each of the following items:
    • Comments
    • Ink Annotations
    • Insertions and Deletions
    • Formatting
    • Reviewers (Point to Reviewers and make sure that All Reviewers is selected.)
    If a check mark does not appear next to an item, click the item to select it.
  3. On the Review tab, in the Changes group, click Next or Previous.default.aspx?assetid=za101539421033
  4. Do one of the following:
    • In the Changes group, click Accept.
    • In the Changes group, click Reject.
    • In the Comments group, click Delete.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all the tracked changes in the documenthave been accepted or rejected and all the comments have been deleted.
  • If you know that you want to accept all the changes, click Accept, and then click Accept All Changes in Document.
  • If you know that you want to reject all the changes, click Reject, and then click Reject All Changes in Document.
  • To remove all comments, you must delete them. In the Comments group, click the arrow next to Delete, and then click Delete All Comments in Document.
