Search function won't find words that I have changed while using track changes
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)
Processor: Power PC
I am editing a huge document using track changes. Now any changes I have made to the document are no longer being found when I do a search. To confirm, the text I am searching for is the *new* text, and I have tried different settings -- both keeping track changes on and turning it off; setting the view to final, final showing changes, original showing changes, etc. But any text I have changed, even slightly (e.g. removing quote marks or italicizing the text), will cause that text to not be found when I search.
This is...Track changes
I am using Excel 2000 and I am trying to use the "Track Changes" feature. When I make a change to a cell, the cell gets marked by a triangle in the upper right hand corner, and if I hover the mouse over the cell, I get a popup telling me what the change was. This is ok, but I'd really like this to work more like the track changes feature in MS Word, where changes are shown in a different color and what was originally there gets crossed out. I was wondering if I can set Excel up to work this way?
I don't think you can do this in Excel.

For some reason, Word X is using blue for track changes on my Mac iBook G4,
yet when I share the document with others, they see the changes in red. This
is a real problem for me because I have hyperlinks within the document and
it's difficult to see which blue underlined phrases are hyperlinks and which
I don't want to do a manul change to red because then I won't be able to
differentiate other reviewer's changes.

My boss is working on a document, which he and a partner have been revising.
He is ready to accept changes, but when he tries to "accept all" or tries to
go to the "next" markup, he gets the message that there are no comments or
tracked changes. When he changes the view to "final" or "original" nothing
changes. It still shows all the markups. When he clicks inside the markup
to try to individually accept that change, it doesn't give the accept/reject
It seems there is nothing he can do to get rid of the markup text.

...Word 2007 track changes "final" v. "final showing markup"
When I am working in a document where track changes has been turned on, and I
turn off the track changes, the document still opens in "final showing
markup" instead of "final." I want the document to open in "final" form. Is
there a way to do that?
By default, any markup is always made visible when you open a document in
Word. This is a privacy setting, so that you don't inadvertently send the
file to someone else, forgetting about the markup. You can turn the setting
off, but only for your machine (you can't control what others see if they...Track Changes

...Track Changes Hover balloon
We have several users that the Track Changes Hover balloon does not work for
them. When editing docs with track changes whenever the cursor hovers on
changed text there is a balloon that pops up and states the authors name. We
have machines where this balloon does not pop up. Sometimes if you look
really close it looks like it is there for a flash but it disappears right
How can I make it so that this hover balloon is visible again? What can be
causing this behavior? It is on more than on machine but not all of them so
I am thinking it is some sort of setting.
