Everytime i open a document that has reviewing markups, Word displays the markups, even when i save the file using the "Final" option.

I just want the "Final (not showing markup)" to be the default option when i open the document.

Thanks for a solution.

gandhirs:

You need to accept all changes before you'll get a clean copy.  Tools, Track Changes, Accept or Reject Changes, Accept All.  This should work in most versions of Word.  If you have Word 2002 or higher, it will be slightly different.  Let me know if you need more help.  Although you can turn off viewing of tracked changes (Tools, Options, Track Changes, View Changes on Screen.... etc. )

Let me know if you need more help.  It would also be helpful to know what version of Word you're using.

Nobody answered the question, but I will split the points and give an excellent grade because the other options are too annoying or not polite or etc.

You should see a toolbar called "Reviewing" when you open a document with track changes.  Click the button that says "Show" and uncheck everything.  That way you should see a "Final" whenever you open a document.

However, if someone else wants to see the changes when they open the document, they can still see them.

Also - perhaps this article will help:

Well, it doesn't work with me. Whenever I open the document, all the options are checked again.
