Word 2003 spellcheck &Track Changes - original & new text

by devnulljp / January 16, 2006 2:27 PM PST

I have a prob with spellchecker in Word 2003 when using track changes. Even with Show set to Final, the spellchecker shows both the original & the new text, which is confusing.

So, for example a sentence that reads:
"Demo sentence fubar"

which is then changed to:

"Demo sentence foo-bar"

Even with Show set to Final, the spellchecker window shows:

"Demo sentence fubarfoo-bar"

Any ideas how to fix this behaviour?

Windows 2000
MS Office 2003 SP2
