  • How do I view the ‘Tracked Changes’ in MS Word 2013/14?

    The ‘Track Changes’ highlighting will not show automatically in MS Word 2013/14. To show changes:

    • Select the ‘Review’ tab on the main menu
    • Click on the dropdown box that currently says ‘Simple Markup’
    • Select ‘All Markup’ from the options

    The editor’s tracking will now show.

  • How will I see the changes that the editor makes to my document?

    All amendments to your document made by the editor will be highlighted through the MS Word ‘Track Changes’ feature. We recommend that you review each change individually. However, we will also return a ‘clean’ version of your edited file that does not show any tracking/mark-up.
