selecting all track changes in a document


G

Guest

Hello,

I would like to write my comments in italics in an existing text. It is
easily done of course if every time I want to add some text, I first change
the fontstyle to italics, but this is exactly what I want to avoid. The idea
would be that every time I touch the text it will come out as italics. The
reason therefore that it has to show what were my insertions, without using
track changes.

The problem is the following: if I use track changes, after acceptance it
will show the text in normal characters, i.e., the bits I have added to a
bold-italics text will be bold-italics, the ones I added to normal text will
be normal, the ones I added to underlined text will be underlined and so on.
I have also tried to search for the stlye of the track changed text, so that
I could select all and format in one go, but I could not set "find track
changed text" in the FIND command.
I have also tried to set the default font to italics, but it changes the
font of the original/existing document, too.
Any ideas from one of the experts out there, how to solve this issue?
Thanks a lot,

Have you tried creating character styles with the desired formatting and then
applying those styles consistently?

Hello,

Could u specify what exactly do you mean by it? I have tried to create a new
character style, and set it as default, but it won't let me. The default
remains always the "Normal" style..

There is no way to set a "default" character style. The closest thing Word
has to a default style is the Normal style.

Instead, what I suggested would be a manual task.

If that wouldn't be an acceptable method, ask in a programming newsgroup,
such as microsoft.public.word.vba.general. Someone there *might* have a
better idea.
