Manually mark unchanged document content as changed

by Mr. Boy   Last Updated December 14, 2018 10:01 AM

I made some changes to a document before remembering to enable change tracking. Is there a way I can select some text and forcibly tell MSWord "mark this as changed"?

As there is no command to do that, here is what I usually do to mark some text as “changed”, without removing the tracking:

  • Select all the text you want to mark,
  • Cut it,
  • Accept the removal,
  • Paste it back.

Here is a GIF (with some french language inside the contextual menu, but it's easy to understand!) :

Mark as modified

I hope it helps.
