Word 2010 Tracking Issues
Posted on 2014-08-22
One of our users has been editing a Word 2010 document using the Track Changes feature in Word.
She has finished making all her changes and is ready to save it as final. However when she attempts to "Accept all changes in the document" she is presented with a message that says:
"Some changes could not be accepted/rejected because they are contained in controls which are locked for editing"
There are 2 buttons on this message, one says "OK" and the other "cancel". Hitting either one does not fix the problem.
I noticed that the "Restrict Editing" / "Limit formatting to a selection of styles" was enabled. So I disabled it and saved the document and attempted to accept all the changes again, but I still get the same message above.
Does anyone know why this message would be appearing and where would be the next place to check to accept all the changes and make the document final?
