Hi,

I am a new member in this forum. First time trying to track changes in word 2007, but dont understand why the changes made are shown differently when sent to an email address. The configured selections are identical with the recipient. The deleted line is shown without any strike through line, but the new added text is shown with a strike through line as if it was deleted.

The original word document with me is fine and shows deleted as strike through line and the newly added line as an underlined added text. What went wrong and where...I am in search. Please guide me if you know my mistake. Thanks.

Best Regards,
Shahid

You didn't make a mistake. The way tracked changes are shown in a Word document depends on the preferences of the person who is reading it. So the person you sent the document to has different settings on his/her computer than you do on yours.

Phillip, thanks for your time and help. Is it possible to know what settings to keep by the email recipient for receiving the document as I had sent?
