  1. Hey Penny, this is Jen. I know how to do this. I am however needing a word program newer than 97 because I don't know where the track changes are in that version. In the newer versions I have used this to red line the work of others. And I'm a research queen as you know with Legends. There was a lot of historical stuff added to that set of stories. And you know I've been at this American english writing for awhile now. Message me on FB please and thank you.

    Jen~
