WordMacroFilter: So my new boss is great but he has some crazy grammar and wordsmithing quirks. I received a list (no joke) of the edits he wants to see of documents that come to his desk (use affect instead of impact, effect instead of impacts, etc). I'd like to create a Microsoft Word Macro that will automate the task.

I don't think that find and replace will work to just sub out the word. Instead, I'd like it to find all of the quirks and highlight them. I recorded a macro today (not coding, but by following me doing the find and highlight quirk by quirk), but it doesn't loop correctly when I run it and it's hard to update. I'm hoping that someone already has something like this or there is some commercial software. Thanks!
