Default Strike through formatting in Track Changes


Hello all. I'm using Word 365. In previous versions of Word, when I set up Track Changes I was able to have Word strike through what I corrected and place my name next to it. I must have forgotten something here, but when I set it up with the set-up below, I just get the new text in the original format; no strike through and the only indication of the change is the bar to the left margin. Can someone tell me what I'm missing? Thanks.

The only difference I see is that your example shows a combination of blue and red in the "By Author" box. If that is what I need to do, how do I get 2 colors. The dropdown only allows one color. Thanks.

Strikethrough is unusual markup for insertions. The usual is underline.


You do not need the red/blue. It is at the top of the list and may be scrolled off the top in your view. It has nothing to do with your problem, though.

That did it. I assume the Blue/Red box allows for each reviewer to have their own color. Thanks.
