MS Word Tip #2

Those annoying hyperlinks in Microsoft Word have struck again! This time, we were trying to find a simple way to change all visited links back to unvisited; i.e. from purple back to blue. Should be easy, I know, but it isn't.

Here is one way that I found:

  1. Click the "Word Button" (Office 2007)
  2. On the Word Options dialog, go to "Advanced"
  3. Scroll to the very bottom, and select "Web Options"
  4. Switch to the "Files" tab
  5. Uncheck "Update links on save"
Whilst this doesn't stop the hyperlinks from turning purple, if you close down the word document and re-open it, the link will be set back to blue. Again, nothing at all to do with Mobile GIS, but it may come in handy one day!
