is there a line we could add to the following VBA routine in order to highlight one letter before and one letter after all deleted text, so that when all changes are accepted, we can still visualize where some text has been deleted? Here is the code I am talking about from a previous post:

There is the Revisions Object in VBA. From there it's simple to iterate through each revision item, accept and hightlight it with a predefined color.

Additionally we need to temporarly disable tracking.

Sub tracked_to_highlighted()           
    tempState = ActiveDocument.TrackRevisions
    ActiveDocument.TrackRevisions = False    
    For Each Change In ActiveDocument.Revisions        
        Set myRange = Change.Range
        myRange.HighlightColorIndex = wdGreen            
    ActiveDocument.TrackRevisions = tempState

End Sub
