Turning off tacked changes

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I am new to using tracking changes and need some basic help here. I have Word for Mac 2008, V. 12.2.3, and Mac OS 10.5.8. I am working on  a book with a co-author who has tracked changes for me. After approving her changes and clicking on final in the toolbox I cannot save the final without all of the mark-ups. I have searched the forum and found similar discussions, however, I can't figure out something quite basic-how do I TURN OFF track changes that everyone keeps talking about. Please be specific in your answers as I am a newbie.BTW I have tried clicking the "track changes" box in the toolbox so it is highlighted on and off and still no saving of the final documents! Can anyone help please? Thanks.

You're right, Help in Office 2008 is absolutely abominable, but Track
Changes can be turned of in at least 2 ways;

1- Click the round TRK button at the bottom of the window, or

2- Click the Track Changes button on the Reviewing Toolbar,

But that doesn't seem to be what you're having a problem with :-)...

The Reviewing toolbar also provides buttons to Accept/Reject the changes
once the tracking is turned off. Alternatively, you can use Tools> Track
Changes> Accept or Reject Changes... to do so. This must be done to remove
the markup - none of the choices in the 'Display for Review' list on the
Reviewing Toolbar remove the markup or the changes tracked.

How to change default font in Outlook 2003
Can someone tell me how to change tthe default font in Outlook 2003 when composing a new email. It always comes up as Times New Roman.

reading pane keeps turning on and preview pane keeps turning off
I've been using outlook 2007 for about 6 months and all has been ok until now. My normal view is to have the reading pane turned off and the preview pane turned on. however, now things changed all of a sudden. now when ever I go to the inbox the reading pane is turned on and the preview pane is turned off. So I go to the view menu and reset the view to what it should be. if I click on any other folder such as sent items and back to the inbox, its back to reading pane on and preview pane off. This is the same behavior for all folders. any ideas how to resolve this? Thanks. -- ...

Re: Percent change
I have written an excel spreadsheet. There are six columns which represent activity during particular days of the week on one worksheet. I have an defined allotment to use each day during the week. Sometimes my weeks are made up of 6 days, sometimes 5 or 4 or 3 or 2 or 1. I have written excel to spread the allotment evenly among the defined days of the week. The day is allowed to vary.

How do you turn off autoformatting?
I am making a spreadsheet that is essentially a record. In one of the cells, I am entering the old/new values for something as 4/80, which Excel instantly turns into April-80. I can format the the cell back to General, but the number that results is not 4/80. And if I go in and reset it to 4/80 again, the autoformatting kicks in again and the whole process starts over. While there are plenty of ways I could work around this, from changing the way I enter the data on up, it has become a sort of matter of honor now.

changing the formula's row reference
In column A, I have a number of formulae that refer to other cells on the worksheet. For example, in A1, the formula is = BB30, A2=BD30, A3=BG30, etc. In these formulae, the columns are all different, but the row number is always the same. However, I need to update the formulae to reflect a new row, so that A1=BB31, A2=BD31, A3=BG31. The old column references will stay the same, and the row references will all be the same number. Is there a way to do this quickly and easily for a large number of formulae? Thanks! You could do a search and replace, Ctrl-H. -- HTH RP (remove no...
