I consider myself a power user of Word and for the most part I’m rarely surprised.
Not today, however. I was talking with a women I know who is both a great agent and a wonderful editor. She had sent a piece of a manuscript and while we were on the phone I said I was going to accept all the changes so I could read her editing easily.
“You don’t have to do it that way,” she said.
“No, go to View. On that drop down menu is the word, markup. Just click that and the track changes will be hidden and the manuscript will be displayed as though you had accepted the changes. If you want to see how the changes were made, click markup again, and they’ll be back.”
I love it! And I’d never heard of that before.
