    Red Strike through (XP and 2003)

    I have a question regarding tracked changes and red strike through. I received a document and I cannot get the red text and the red text with strike through fixed. I am beginning to wonder if the strike through and red font were manually inserted. On a regular document with track changes turned on, the style does not appear as red font with strike through. In this document, the style lists normal+red and normal+red+strikethrough. Is there any method to make sure this was manually done? I went through all the steps to turn off the "revisions" and they will not disappear.

    Thank you for any help!

    This certainly sounds like manual formatting to me. What do you see in the Format > Font dialog box?

    Format, font, red color with strikethrough.

    Did I just answer my own question?
    Thanks

    External comparison programs may generate this type of display. I also have used it myself to anonymize the details of the changes (e.g., author, date/time, etc.).

    Didn't you post some code to convert all deleted text to this format a while ago?

    Hi Melanie

    Yes this 'track change' has been done manually by formatting the font to red strike through. Occasionally documents come into our environment with this method of 'track changes'
