Default 2007 Track Changes Problem

I have a document that has track changes turned on. Under the Track Changes
Options window, I have insertions set to underline and deletions set to
strikethrough. When I delete something, instead of getting a strikethrough,
I get the balloon showing deleted and what was deleted. The insertions act
as they are supposed to with an underline.
In another document where the deletions show as strikethrough, when I accept
all the track changes, the deletions still show with strikethrough, it
doesn't remove the text to be deleted.
Can anyone help please?

For your first document, try turning the balloons either to Never or to Only
for Comments/Formatting. That ought to make your deletions behave.

For your second document, check to make sure that the deleted text has
actually been deleted. I work with lots of highly paid engineers and
scientists who think they're "tracking changes" by simply formatting text as
red strikethrough text (instead of actually turning on their track changes
and deleting it). If that's what happened, you'll have to search for text
formatted as strikethrough and actually delete it.

The formatting you have selected is only for the text that does not appear
in a balloon. In Final Showing Markup, this will be insertions; in Original
Showing Markup, it will be deletions. If you want to have both, you need to
disable balloons or switch to Normal/Draft view.

Since you don't say which version of Word you're using, you'll have to
hunt around in the Track Changes area until you find the checkboxes
that control what is displayed in balloons, and uncheck them all.
Apparently that group of settings overrides the ones you've properly
set (and which are the defaults).

Oops, you do say. The controls are under Review Balloons and _also_
under Review Track Changes Track Changes Options Balloons (near
the bottom, a dropdown menu).
