    Track changes - keyboard user (Word 2003)

    Hello

    Does anyone know why the Tools:Track changes option (and Ctrl-Shft-E) in my Word 2003 seems to have been disabled? I can only get to use the features by using the view bar. I prefer to use the keyboard and used to use the feature in Word 2000.

    Regards
    Will

    According to Keyboard shortcuts for Word ("Applies to: Microsoft Office Word 2003") the shortcut for toggling track changes on and off is still Ctrl+Shift+E.

    Hi, Hans

    Yes, it toggles it on and off, but it does not bring up any dialog box in 2003, like it did in 2000. In other words, I cannot go Alt-T, T, then, for example, A for Accept change. Instead, Alt-T,T, or Ctrl-shft-E just brings up the toolbar. Which is diappointing, to me, in comparison to what I used to be able to do.

    I will be happy to learn of any workaround.

    Regards
    Will

    You can assign your own keyboard shortcuts in Tools | Customize... > Keyboard. If you store them in Normal.dot, they will be available in all documents.
