Hello everyone

I've always wondered how I can disable Alt+down while tracked changes is on (because it creates a huge mess if you do, that takes a lot of time and effort to fix). The following method works for me:

Step 1: Create this macro:

Sub catslikeplaincrisps()

If ActiveDocument.TrackRevisions = False Then
Application.Run MacroName:="WfNextSegment"
ElseIf ActiveDocument.TrackRevisions = True Then
MsgBox "Cats like plain crisps", vbOKOnly, "Shock claim"
End If

End Sub

Step 2: Assign Alt+down to this macro.
