Subject: Customizing default revision cloud settings



All revision clouds are drawn using default settings that can be customized:

   Minimum arc length — The individual arcs that make up a revision cloud can be made smaller or larger by setting the minimum arc length.

   Maximum arc length — The individual arcs that make up a revision cloud can be made smaller or larger by setting the maximum arc length.

   Style — Revision clouds can appear as if they had been drawn with a regular pen or a calligraphy pen.

Only new revision clouds will be drawn with the new settings. Existing revision clouds are not affected.
