ONCE I WAS AFRAID, I WAS PETRIFIED,
KEPT THINKING I COULD NEVER DEAL
WITH COMMENTS DOWN THE SIDE ...
Oh yes you can. You have in front of you all these pages with loads of markings. (It might make you remember school?) But this time, you're in charge: these markings are not going to stay for ever. It's just a stage, as our parents used to say about most things. The thing is, you now have control. You have the power to accept or reject any of it - in fact, you have to!
Go into Review along the top ribbon, and choose All Markup.
WHAT AM I SEEING HERE?
Deletions and insertions. Things I've put in, that's all. And some comments on the right.
Look at each change in turn. If you don't want to go with an insertion I've made, click on it; then in the Changes pane just to the right of the Tracking pane, click Reject Change. (Also, reject my deletion just before it.)
If you adore what I've done, then click on Accept and Move to Next.
And as for the comments on the right, decide for yourself whether you go with my suggestions.
And if in doubt, do nowt, as my aunty used to say. Keep thinking.
ALL THIS POWER - WHAT DO I DO WITH IT?
I said you have the power.
I can cope.
