I’m hoping a fellow editor can help me out here. I use track changes in Word for most of my editing jobs, and I’ve noticed lately that if the document is heavily edited (like if there’s an edit in every paragraph), when I delete a word, the entire freaking paragraph shows up in the margin, but when I hover over it with my mouse, it shows the single word I deleted. It’s annoying and causing everything to lag in the document and force opening the Review Pane, which adds another element that slows everything down.
I’m using Microsoft Word for Mac, v. 16.12, on an iMac running High Sierra with 24GB of RAM. I can run multiple Adobe programs at once without lag, but for some reason, Microsoft Word just doesn’t want to work right.
