I confess I don’t like Track Changes , but I especially hate it when one of my colleagues sends me a document she reviewed with Track Changes and her comments are so long I can’t print them because they don’t fit in the margins. Any suggestions?
You’re right; Track Changes is clumsy, but it’s very useful and so it’s worth learning how to get around its idiosyncrasies. To provide more room on the page for all the comments, change your page orientation to landscape by opening Track Changes (by clicking on Tools , Options , the Track Changes tab) and select Force Landscape in the Paper Orientation drop-down list. Then click on OK (see screenshot below).
Now if you want only comments to print, engage the Reviewing toolbar (Ctrl+Shift+E), click on the Show down arrow and clear all the boxes except Comments and Final (see screenshotbelow).
Then, to print the document, click on File , Print and in the Print what box, select Document showing markup and click on OK (see screenshot below).
