When using Word track changes and comments when collaborating on Word documents. Track changes in Word to ensure error-free files.
If you have a lot of tracked changes, they may become distracting if you're trying to read through a document. Fortunately, Word provides a few ways to customize how tracked changes appear:
You can also click the marker in the left margin to switch between Simple Markup and All Markup.
Remember that hiding Track Changes is not the same as reviewing changes. You will still need to accept or reject the changes before sending out the final version of your document.
By default, most revisions appear inline, meaning the text itself is marked. You can also choose to show the revisions in balloons, which moves most revisions to the right margin. Removing inline markups can make the document easier to read, and balloons also give you more detailed information about some markups.
To go back to inline markups, you can select either Show All Revisions Inline or Show Only Comments and Formatting in Balloons.
