> Jon, here are the MS Word problems I have encountered:
> 1. When trying to merge some of the reviewed documents into the
> original copy that was sent out, the following message is given by Word:
> The merged documents contain unmarked changes. Do you want to merge up to
> the first untracked change? I presume the Track Changes function wasn't
> switched on before the reviewing was done, and if so, what is the best way
> to include the suggested changes in the original?
> 2. How can one ensure that the Track Changes function is activated (and
> remain so) when you send out copies to be reviewed?
> 3. Can a revised Word document be retrieved and merged directly from
> the returned email message (with the revised document attached) or must
> the attachment first be saved as a file in order to do this? (I can't find
> an easier way to do this)
> 4. It happened that after merging a revised document with the original,
> the reviewers comments weren't highlighted in the merged document (even
> though my own comments remained highlighted and the reviewers comments are
> also highlighted when opening his revised document separately). This makes
> it impossible to point to a highlighted area and then have the comments
> displayed as screen tips. The comments was incorporated though, because it
> is visible when the Comments Pane is activated. References are then also
> shown in the text, but the specific word/phrase/sentence it refers to is
> still not highlighted.
> Hope someone can help me.
