BLOCK EDITING A MEMO'S TEXT SO ONLY TRACK CHANGES COMMENTS
CAN BE ADDED
In the August column, in “Put a ‘lock’ on Track Changes” (page 94), you described how to block anyone from erasing someone else’s comments in Word’s Track Changes. However, I want to block people from messing around with the text of my memos. If they have a comment or suggested change, I want them to use Track Changes—and keep their hands off the text of my memo. How can I do that?
Follow the same steps listed in August’s item—only this time, in the dropdown list under Editing Restrictions, select Comments (see screenshot at right) and you’ve created an effective barrier.
