    In Word 2003, with Track Changes ON, when the cursor is moved to a paragraph, the text inserted previously is displayed in a window above the paragraph. This is very inconvenient and annoying as it hides part of the paragraph.

    Is there any way to switch this totally unnecessary feature off?

    Thanks
    Jay

    Try disabling "Screentips" (called "document tooltips" in Word 2007).

    In Word 2003, click Tools, Options, View tab, and you should see an option for Screentips. If it's checked, uncheck it.

    (In Word 2007, click the Office button, Word Options, and click Display. At the top of the display options, under Page Display Options, you'll see a box for "Show tooltips on hover." Click to uncheck it.)

    That should do the job.

    Caution: It also will turn off the display of pop-ups for comments and other items you might want to display. I don't think there's a way to pick and choose which specific pop-ups will and will not display.
