    Pop the balloons (Word 2002)

    Anyone know of a way to programatically turn off the balloons feature for Track Changes?

    Check out this example from the online help for the RevisionsMode property:
    <pre>Sub TogglesRevisionMode()
    With ActiveWindow.View
    If .RevisionsMode = wdInLineRevisions Then
    .RevisionsMode = wdBalloonRevisions
    Else
    .RevisionsMode = wdInLineRevisions
    End If
    End With
    End Sub</pre>

    Once you have revisions displayed "inline," you might also want to set the revision markings. See the following properties of, not the View object, but the Options object:

    Options.DeletedTextMark = wdDeletedTextMarkStrikeThrough
    Options.InsertedTextMark = wdInsertedTextMarkItalic

    There also are properties for the colors, of course. Hope this helps.

    Thanks a bunch! You made my day. Of course, I should have looked there in the first place. Next time I will. Thanks again.
