Word: Turn off ‘track formatting’ in Track ChangesJuly 17, 2014
Based on a Writing Tip I wrote for my work colleagues…
Are all your formatting changes tracked when you have track changes in Word turned on?
Most of the time you don’t need these formatting balloons cluttering up your document and adding to your stress levels. Here’s how to turn off track formatting, while still keeping track changes on for insertions/deletions etc.:
- Go to the Review tab > Track Changes drop-down arrow > Change Tracking Options.
- Clear the Track Formatting check box, then click OK.
