I don't like the way Track Changes works in Word 2002, either. I'm hoping someone else knows of a better solution than the one I use. I'm not fond of using the mouse with toolbar icons, so I assigned keyboard shortcuts to the following commands in the Tools category:

NextChangeorComment: Go to the next insertion, deletion, or comment
AcceptChangesSelected: Accepts the change in the current selection
RejectChangesSelected: Rejects changes and deletes comments in the current selection

You might also want to assign a keyboard shortcut to the PreviousChangeorComment command.

When I'm ready to accept or reject changes, I press the keyboard shortcut for NextChangeorComment, then press either the AcceptChangesSelected or RejectChangesSelected shortcut to accept or reject the selected change. Then I press the NextChangeorComment shortcut to go to the next change, and so on.

This approach doesn't automatically take users to the next change, but it does minimize the mousing around.

My DH, liked the way Word2000 handled "tracking changes", probably because
it was wasn't spread all over and in toolbars like the 2002 version. We
have recently purchased a new WinXP Pro and Word2002 is the version that
we have now. :-)

Anyway, is there any way to tweek Word (like you can do with Framemaker's
.ini file) to return to the older configuration?
