Is there a way to just record the comments and changes made in a Word document. I'm thinking the Mark up only option in Printing but is there something else?

I don't believe that there is a built-in option for that, but you could write a macro to create another document that lists the revisions and comments.

Here is a very simple example:

Option Explicit

Sub ListChanges()
    Dim rev As Revision
    Dim comm As Comment
    Dim docB As Document
    Dim docA As Document
    
    Set docA = ActiveDocument
    Set docB = Documents.Add
    
    docB.Range.Text = "Comments" & vbCr
    For Each comm In docA.Comments
        docB.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range.Text = comm.Range.Text
    Next comm
    
    docB.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range.Text = vbCr & "Revisions" & vbCr
    For Each rev In docA.Revisions
        docB.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range.Text = rev.Type & vbTab & rev.Range.Text & vbCr
    Next rev

End Sub
