How to Accept, Reject and Review Tracked Changes.


As many of you know, I use the ‘Track Changes’ feature when proofreading a document to show insertions, deletions and comments I have made in a way where it is easy for the student whose work I am editing to see what edits I have made.

However, I realise that for those of you unfamiliar with the tracked changes function it can be confusing when you receive a document covered in markup to know what to do with it. I was going to create my own tutorial using pictures and screenshots, but I thought a video would be more helpful, so here is one I found on YouTube.

The one helpful trick she does not show however, is if you want to accept all the changes in a paragraph or section, you can highlight the text by clicking and dragging over it, then click accept to accept all changes within that section.

I hope this helps!

  1. It works very well Liz. Having done a wonderful job for me and those who recommended you to me in the past, I think you’ve also done more here to make your services very easy to comprehend.

    • Thanks Maria, I appreciate that. I really should have looked up a tutorial like this a long time ago so that I could email it to people along with their work.
