When changing a document with review tracking turned on normally to remove the comments we just click the accept changes button.  We are finding out however that when anyone else that has view markup seleted, they are still able to review the markups after we have published the document.  Is there anyway to completed remove the markups written during a document review?

Typically Accept All Changes will remove both redline / blackline markings and comments. However, if that is not doing it for you, then you will want to add the following to your arsenal of tricks.

Some people use different products than Word to markup a document. Some of those other tools just change the text so that it appears as though it is marked up. In which case they have changed the styles. Those documents will need to be cleaned manually - the above tool will not clean them of insertions and deletions. (DeltaView is one of the tools which changes styles)
