Word font color through remote desktop

Hello,

I have a really weird one for you.  A user just called me that when she remotes into her computer from another computer on the network and attempts to edit a Word document saved to her home folder, the font is red?  If you change to font color to automatic or black, it does no good.  I opened the document from my PC directly from her home folder and immediately saw that the font color was set to red.  I changed it to automatic and started typing.  It was blue?  I changed the font color to black and started typing again.  It was blue.  I then attempted to delete the text I typed in and got a horizontal blue line in replacement of the text I had typed in?  What the heck?  What is even weirder is the user now sees the blue line, I see, as red?  Anybody seen this one before?

Thanks,
Mike

Looks like the version and change management is switched on. It tracks changes made for later approval. The colors are chosen arbitrary, but represent a different user each time.
