Subject:Change Bars with Word 6.0 From:"Thomas E. Potter" <TPotter243 -at- AOL -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 21 Dec 1995 19:22:59 -0500
If someone will be so kind as to help me with a small problem. I want to
insert change bars (those long vertical stripes that border changed portions
of text in manuals) using Word 6.0. I've tried the revision tools. That will
insert a thin change bar which disappears when you print the document.
Besides, this bar is too thin; It should be 0.1" wide. I also know that
paragraph borders will work, but sometimes I want to mark only one sentence
in a paragraph.
God, this is so easy to do in WordPerfect. I'm afflicted on every turn by
Bill Gates and his minions. (I'm losing it; so hurry please.)
