    Track Changes - Original Author Not Seen (O2K SR1)

    A user distributes a document with Tracking turned on. The recipients edit the document, seeing the changes highlighted as they should be. In addition, they hand their mouse over the changes, the author of the additions pops up in a box.

    When the original owner of the document gets it back, she sees the highlighted edits but does not see the author of those changes pop up when she hangs her mouse over them.

    I know of no option to turn that on or off. She's running O2K SR1. Any ideas?

    Just a guess here - does she get other tool tips? I wonder if that's what governs this?

    It could be that the other users don't have Word set up with their user details (Tools/Options/User Information). Unless their copies of Word knows who they are, it can't put this detail in the tracked changes.
