I made changes to a Word .docx file but forgot to have "Track Changes" turned on. So to rectify this, I tried to Undo (Ctrl+z) all the changes, turn Track Changes on, then Redo (Ctrl+y) all the changes. Unfortunately, this didn't work: the changes were not marked. Is there any other way that I can backtrack and "capture" all my changes so my reviewer can easily see what changes I made?

Well, I found at least one solution to my problem. I used Compare to compare the original version with the revised version. The resulting comparison window displayed all changes as Tracked Changes. So I saved that comparison document as mydoc_rev1. When I open up mydoc_rev1 and turned on Final:Show Markup, the changes were marked appropriately.
