Track Changes Word 2010
Posted on 2012-03-15
I utterly despise track changes, have no use for it, have no desire to do anything with it, and wish it was simply not on my machine.
The very best solution is to have it completely removed from my install. Is this possible? I receive countless documents all with this dumb-as-paint track changes xml and rubbish that I want removed. Can Track Changes be completely removed and thus, when I receive a document that carries track changes tags with it, all I get is the print view content only.
If that is not possible then can someone give me a macro that hides all tracked changes, comments, and other rubbish that comes directly from one of these documents in which the last editor used track changes? The below just doesn't cut it and I am not familiar with macros in Word. I need to open each document, run the macro, and for those changes to be saved. when re-opening I don't want to see all that crap filling my monitor with useless meaningless content.
.ShowRevisionsAndComments = False
.RevisionsView = wdRevisionsViewFinal
