Add Track Changes Toggle to Bottom of Page in Word 2016

I've run into lots of issues since I was recently pushed into updating my everyday tool of Microsoft Word from 2011 to 2016. Some of these issues are huge and still unresolved. Some are small and irritating but getting better. Here's the way I fixed one problem I found.

The Words Behind Selma - eDITMORE

I loved many things about the movie "Selma." I especially loved the reminder that Martin Luther King was a writer, a preacher, a man--not a myth.

Voice of a Writer - eDITMORE

As an editor, I find it important to match a author's voice. But what if your author's voice is familiar to millions?

I'm checking online cites today for an article I'm editing on housing preferences of older adults. Before I even finish the article, I get a spam email: "Planning a move to Florida?"

Memorial Day (Non)Memories - eDITMORE

By its definition, Memorial Day is to remember those who have lost their lives serving our country. Sometimes those very losses leave holes in our memories.

Every Memorial Day, I find myself musing about a man I never met. He was my husband’s uncle, but Michael never met him either. This would-have-been uncle-in-law died while fighting in the Pacific Theater sometime during World War II. The man I’ve only heard about was referred to as “June” by my late…
