Remove  / Hide MS Word Markup after saving the doc.

Posted on 2007-10-05

I have a WORD document that I want to email without any comments,  markup , editing, etc. to be visible.

I turn off Markup from  the View --> Markup Menu, then save the doc., then reopen,  and it opens
showing all the editing markup again.

From Tools --> Options --> Security --> Privacy options   I UNchecked "Make Hidden Markup Visible..." option - still , after opening - they show up.

Saving with a different filename didn't help either.

I am sending the doucment to a customer. Need to get rid of all the Markup  stuff..

Any ideas?

    You need to Accept (or Reject) all changes in document. Hiding is only temporary.

    Both contributors were not entirwly right , but deserve the partial credit.

    It turned out , the document was locked for editing and password protected and that was the reason it wouldn't let me delete the markups.

    Thanks for your input
