atw: Re: hidden text exposed

I think one real issue is people not knowing which important settings are
machine specific and which are document or template specific.  I might try
to write that at some stage.

 

Find me 6 people for a class, and I will come to Perth to do one (5 people
for other states, 4 people for Melbourne).  I am offering 2010 through Geoff
Marnell again - classes will go up on his website after Easter, but I am not
sure at this stage if I am offering open classes or just group bookings.

Now you're trying to convince me to use Word 2007/10. Not until I've done
one of your courses! When are you coming to Perth?

 

Actually, deleting was my recommendation.

 

And to me it would make more sense that the MS applications worked in a
logical and consistent manner.

 

Thanks Christine.

As hidden text is a machine specific setting, you cannot control the remote
computer.  So as someone or other might have suggested, take a copy of your
document, strip out the hidden text (easy to do as a single operation using
the Inspect Document feature in Word 2007/2010), and send them the clean
copy only.  This is wise in any circumstance so that you don't make any
silly mistakes.
