    Track Changes Saving in Only One Color? (2003 SP2 (Office Pro), on XP Pro)

    I recently noticed that upon saving a Word document with tracked changes, all the changes switch to red. Other users have told me they can no longer keep their changes in a separate color. In each case, the tracked changes appear, as before, in different colors until the document is saved, when all the changes are saved in only one color. Has anyone else noticed this problem?

    Thanks

    Does the author name change to Unknown? If so, it is a "feature" to remove personally identifying information from the document. This is toggled under: Tools > Options..., Security tab, Privacy options, first item.

    That's it. You solved it. Three different documents, each with that setting.

    Thanks. I appreciate it.
