Buffista Business Talk: I wanted simple, I wanted in-and-out, I wanted easy money.

A virtual watercooler where Buffistas in business can talk, share, exchange, bemoan, exult and assorted other power verbs associated with all areas of running/starting up a business. For existing or potential Buffista business owners of all types. Spamming is NOT ON. A list of our Buffista owned businesses is on our links page.

Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

I support Buffista businesses. Oh, and being in the first 10.

Because books.

I need help already!

I'm editing a manuscript -- .docx in whatever the newest Word is -- and my insertions aren't showing up in a new color. They should be, though, shouldn't they? And I deleted something and it just disappeared like usual, instead of showing it.

I know I have Track Changes on, though -- I added a comment already, and it's there on the side.

Help? (I miss my red pencil and a hard copy manuscript so very, very much.)

"Faded like the lilac, he thought."

In honor of the birth of the Buffista business thread, I am sitting in the bank waiting room trying to resolve the issue of my missing replacement business debit card following last month`s fraud. Yay business ownership. This is the sort of thing I`m supposed to have people for. Where are my people?
I also feel I should confess that I was the lone vote against the thread but only on general principles. And in delicious irony, I then linked my business in the links page and rushed over here to post. So apparently I`ll use it!

Amy -- That seems like a Tech thread question.

We have a lot of editors in here, so I thought this would be easier and quicker, Jon.

That makes sense to me.

Amy, I just opened a new Word doc and tested it - my changes show up fine. I didn't immediately see anything in a Settings section that looked like it would change the rev marks.

comments and track changes are different--you can add comments even without track changes on, so double check you have it on?

"It didn't taste good. It tasted soooo horrible. It tasted like....a vodka martini." - Matilda

I just did that too, Amy. For some reason, I had to click Tools/Track Changes twice before the tracking toolbar showed up.

Let me check again. Thanks, people!

"Against all evidence, I keep thinking the assholes are outliers." - James Holden

Apparently I am being productive.

Still being stubborn about updating my Word version. I just convert all those docx things I get. I dislike learning new menu systems.

Love the title.
