tracking changes by ink color in "edit mode"

Copper Contributor

I need to either:

1) be in "edit mode" and still track changes (i.e., any new text I write has a different ink color than the original document)

 

or 2) be in "review mode" and not have to manually accept every deletion. 

 

Is this possible? If not, I will need to stop using Word after being a user for 3 decades.

@hasmolker For the second option, if you run a macro containing the following code, it will cause all of the deletion revisions in the document to be accepted, leaving the others unchanged.

 

Dim arev As Revision
For Each arev In ActiveDocument.Revisions
    If arev.Type = wdRevisionDelete Then
        arev.Accept
    End If
Next arev
