Word 2003 Track Changes - does not reject numbering RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have switched on track changes and tested the system by deleting text, formatting some tect in bold and applyed a numbered list.

    When I reject all changes, the document reverts to its original state but the numbering remains switched on. I don't understand why the numbering doesn't get switched off as I have rejected this action.

  • Hi,

     

    Normally, if you turn on track changes, add numbering list, and then revert back the changes, the numbering can also be reverted back.

     

    Can you list the exact steps on how to reproduce this issue, so we can have a test?

     

    Also, you can test this issue by starting Word with /a switch.

     

    1.       Click Start, and then click Run.

    2.       In the Open box, type the following text, and then press ENTER:
    "%programfiles%\microsoft office\office1
    1\winword.exe" /a

     

    What’s the result?

     

    Best Regards,

  • Here are the steps:

    - create a new document and enter 'this is a test'

    - save file

    - switch on 'track changes'

    - delete some text

    - switch on 'Numbering' tool

    - save changes

    - click down-arrow next to 'Reject Change/Delete Comment' tool 

    - select 'Reject All Changes in Document'

    - all changes are rejected but the numbering is still switched on.

     

    I have tried the above using the /a switch and there is no problem - ie numbering is switched off when I reject all changes.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    I found it said in this article

    Please Note: The third-party product discussed here is manufactured by a company that is independent of Microsoft. We make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.):

    If you're working with a formatted list, Word allows you only to accept formatting changes made to the bullets or numbers; you cannot reject these changes. However, you can accept or reject changes made in the list's text. If you want to reject formatting changes made to your list, you'll need to accept the change and then reformat the list so that it is displayed in its original formatting.
