Q Is there a way to only accept all formatting changes without accepting moved text? I can’t make it show *only* formatting. I can hide insertions/deletions and “accept all shown,” but that would also accept moves?
A You got it! Just hide all changes except the formatting ones and “Accept All Changes Shown” as shown in the steps below:
Sometimes Word won’t hide the moved text; watch out for that.
Prevent Word from tracking formatting changes by turning off that option in the Track Changes Preferences.
