I just reinstalled word, and found to my dismay that I've
been allocated the color grey as the color of all my
default changes. This is a particularly useless color, and
I need to change it. But I can't figure out how.

Any ideas?

go into tools and options, you should be able to make all
changes to the author correction colors in there.

hope this helped you out.

No, that doesn't work. In options - track changes, you can
set it so that ALL changes are of one particular color,
but you can't change the color of just one author.

there isn't really any way, except something that resembles
going to Las Vegas. IOW, it's a lottery...

You might try going into Tools/OPtions/User Info and changing
your name and initials. Make a couple of changes in a dummy
doc. Now change it back to what you had before. With any
luck, Word will cycle colors. Or, you may just need to live
with a changed name, or the gray, until Word decides on its
own to cycle the colors again. (Which it will certainly do
when you least want it to!)

G'day "Jonas" ,

you need macro to highlight the ranges in different colors
