Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008

If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.

Quiz Preview: Bigger is Better -- When the Mac debuted in 1984, it featured a 9-inch black and white display that was 512 pixels wide and 342 pixels high, and the density and graphical fidelity of that display compared to other computers was part of the Mac's eventual success. These days, iMacs have 15-inch displays and default to a resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels; a logical display almost four and a half times larger than the original Macintosh. Plainly, a larger display with a greater display area is beneficial because you can see and do more simultaneously. So, this week's quiz asks what you can do to see more on your Mac's desktop. We'll give you a hint: it doesn't necessarily involve acquiring a new Mac, a new monitor, or new add-ons - or even installing software. Test your knowledge on our home page, and we'll cover the correct answer next week! [GD]
