    I'm extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.. adabkadgcbecgded

    OK - took a while to figure out how to disable the FollowedHyperlinks - As stated you click on the little arrow at the top where Styles are. Then click on Options (bottom).
    From there you have to select which styles are displayed (default is suggested) - change this to all. Close options, and repeat above. Now you can right click on "FollowedHyperlink" - and change it's setting. Then go back into Options, and change "All" back to "suggested". Now both Hyperlinks and Followed Hyperlinks are good.

    I have a "home" document and am linking daughter docs into it. So if I have three linked docs and click anywhere in any of them, the text that whole linked doc is highlighted in grey. It's very distracting, because you inevitably click where you are reading, so it's always high-lighted. Is there any way to turn off that highlighting?

    My goal is for hyperlinks to be black with no undlerline. This is possible, but getting FOLLOWED HYPERLINKS to remain black with no underline has been, so far, not possible.

      hyperlinks and followed-hyperlinks are different styles.

      From the “Home” tab, click the small arrow icon in the lower-right corner of the “Styles” box. Alternately, you can use Alt+Ctrl+Shift+S .
      Select the “Options…” link in the lower-right corner.
      In the “Select styles to show:” dropdown menu, select “All styles“.

      You will now have an option for “FollowedHyperlink” in the “Styles” list.
