Change Highlighting has stopped working in MSP 2007??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • All of a sudden, the change highlighting feature in a MSP 2007 file has stopped working.  I have tried making "save as" file, restarting the computer, and playing around with View-Show Change Highlighting feature.

    My other projects are ok.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

  • Change the drop down to Changed Tasks and see if it still is configured properly.
     
    On that note, what happens if you flip to a different view and make a change?

  • Take a look at the Text Styles option to see if maybe it got turned off there
    (for highlighted tasks)?

  • Thanks for the suggestion.  Could you point me to where that is?  I didn't find it going through tabs in Options...  Thanks!

  • In 2007, it's under the Format menu.

  • Thank you!  It shows items to change:  "all" 

    It appears to match the working files???

  • That was it!!!  I have no idea how it changed; I wasn't doing anything with backgrounds or that tab but what a relief!

    Thanks so much for your help; I never could have found it on my own.
