When using Record, Deleted text disappearing instead of Red-Lining, Please help!

Hi , Please help…I am new to this program and on top of it constantly crashing, it is no longer showing the text I am deleting with a red line through it, even though Record is on and it worked yesterday. Can someone please assist me in this. I am under a dead-line and have now spent 2 hours trying to fix and research the issue to no avail.

Thank you in advance.
