Hi, I'm writing a big manual in Word XP that just went for review. While the document is being reviewed I have to continue to write on the next version in the same document. I'd like to make all new text I write be different from the text that is reviewed, so I know what I add new. Is it possible for example, to make all new text use another default text color (like blue instead of black), please? I know I can use Track Changes in Word but I really don't like it (too much fuss!). I just want to have a different font color (without changing styles or having to mark new text in blue all the time). The old text have to stay black also :)
