I am editing an existing doc, I want to make all my edit as red (or any different color). What I am doing right now, I made edit and then reach out to fonts and change color each time I change something, is there a simpler way so my edit automatically goes in red. Tracking is already ON in word document.
- Go to Review > Tracking Dialog Launcher.
- Select Advanced Options.
- Select the arrows next to the Color boxes and the Comments box, and choose By author. You can also color-code text moves and changes made to table cells.
The method depends on which version of Microsoft Word you use, but what you want to do is find the Advanced Track Changes Options menu. In it you can set your default color, but note other people who open your file will not necessarily see the same. For them the color is still chosen at random. Good to keep that in mind.
