I am trying to figure out how to print the vertical change bars to indicate locations where a change occurred, but show these on the final text. I have simple markup chosen as my tracking, which it shows up correctly on my screen, but it prints all of the insertions and deletions. How do I print the revised text with the vertical change bars?
You can do this in Word 2010 by simply changing your Track Changes options. (So assume it will also work for Word 2013 for you.)
Change your track changes options (on the Review tab, the second option under the Track Changes button: Change Tracking Options will display the Track Changes Options dialog).
At the top, in the Markup section: for Insertions set to (none) and Color alongside that option to Auto for Deletions, set to Hidden and Color alongside that option to Auto
Changed lines set to which margin you want to show the vertical lines (mine defaults to Left border) and set Color as desired (mine defaults to Black).
If you are in Final: Show Markup, you should now see the change bars in the margin, and the final text (ie including any additions and deletions) (but without the colors/underlining/strikethrough you normally have).
This is how I did it..
First select the 'review' tab, then at the 'Track Changes' button select the little down arrow at the bottom right. This gives you a sub-menu: select the 'Change Tracking Options..'.
Now change the Insertions, and Deletions option to '(none)', and change the 'Changed Lines:' to your desired placement, and change its colour to red, or black, or your choice.
So that is the change tracking sorted, now to do the printing..
Now adjust the 'Show Markup' drop down (for me it's the middle one), you will probably want to deselect the 'comments', and the 'formatting'.
The top option (tool tip of 'Display for Review') should still be 'Final: Show Markup' so that the lines will be in the printout.
Particularly removing the 'comments' stops the page width being adjusted if comments are still present when the document is printed.
This document was the source of inspiration to finally getting it to happen.
