Advanced Track Changes in Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word’s Track Changes is a powerful but idiosyncratic tool. When you learn to use it at an advanced level, understanding the nuances of its logic and behavior, you can communicate more effectively with clients and make it easier for them to work through your edits. In this 90-minute presentation, Erin K. Maher will share an approach to Track Changes that treats it as an active collaborator rather than a background process, considering both the tool’s particularities and the needs of the client. You’ll get specific tips for producing more legible and helpful markup, working around some of the quirks and limitations, and managing tracked changes from multiple users.

More information and registration will be available closer to the event date. Nonmembers may attend up to two free Professional Editors Network meetings before becoming a member, but access to recordings of our meetings is an exclusive benefit of PEN membership.
