    Printing Deletions (Word 2002)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 28-Aug-03 15:29. Removed line breaks. The post will wrap lines automatically. If your browser does not wrap the entry box, please post a note on the Lounge Matters board for future correction.)</P>In Word 2002, when I create a composite document using Tools>Compare and Merge Documents, only the insertions print out. I cannot get the the deletions to print, either as balloons or strike-through text. I can see them in the Print Preview, but not on paper. I am printing "Document showing markup".

    What am I missing?

    Do you get a large blank area where the deletion balloons should be, as though balloons were on but not printing, or just nothing at all?

    You can manually set Word to show deleted text as strike-out text (an option you used to be able to select through the dialog). The procedure, as well as numerous details about tracked changes that might be helpful, are described in an old issue of Woody's Office Watch. For more information, see <post#=272718>post 272718</post#>.

    It prints blank as you said, even when I turn off ballons so that the deletions appear as strikethrough text.

    Another question. What if I want the deleted text to show as balloons? Is there a macro for that, or will SP1 fix the problem?

    Thanks.

    Regarding the "blank area" when you suppress balloons, see this thread.

    Regarding SP1, I assume it fixes many, many things, but I don't know the details. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> You might try that first before the above, since the above requires contacting Microsoft support.
