Word 2007 Problems with commenting RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are having an issue with review comments in Word/PowerPoint.  
    Typically, we have multiple parties review documents and add
    comments/tracked changes.  In the past, each comment and tracked change
    was associated with an individual user.

    However, as of recently, every time someone adds comments to documents
    and saves them the user identification gets dropped (i.e., the comments
    all get tagged with 'A' instead of 'RY' or 'DD', etc).

    Makes it very difficult to facilitate multi-party, sequential document
    reviews.  Is there a configuration change that is potentially causing
    this issue?

  • I think that's caused by a Trust Center setting that get's saved on the document.

    With the document open go to Word Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > Privacy Options and look for the "Remove personal information..." option. Someone marked it and it stays until changed.

  • The "Remove personal information..." option gets selected, in the Trust Center Settings dialog box in Word, if someone has run the Document Inspector on the Word document. Clear the option to prevent additional user names from being removed.
