A few years ago, one of the people in a Hatrack group created an Word document that explains how to use Word's tracking feature for critiquing a Word document (for manuscript exchange in email).

The author, Loren Whitaker, and I talked about putting the instructions on the web, but never really figured out how it should be done.

I've decided to make it a download on my website, but the only link to it is here, in case anyone wants to get it and use it when giving feedback.

Edited to add:

If you want to download it to your own computer, right click on the above link and select the "save target as" option in the menu that should appear. Then indicate where you want to save the file.

Wow, that is great information there.
I learned a lot from that document.
My editors for my last two novels use that and I really didn't understand it that well, till this morning when I read that file.

Thanks for putting it together.
Beth

Well, Loren Whitaker was the one who put it together.

I think it's a great tutorial, so I'm glad you like it.

Kathleen, FYI, I've successfully used Open Office's tracking feature interoperably with Word in the workplace. This was with a very recent version of OO Writer 2.3. On OO, the feature is hidden pretty well under the Edit/Changes menu.
