In a document I had, all my additional edits are underlined and in red font. I must have clicked somthing to cause this setting. I need to know how I can remove this setting.

Question: Do you know how can I remove this setting where my additional edits are no longer underlined and change to red font?

Thank you.

I'm pretty sure you have "Track Changes" turned on.  Click on the TRK at the bottom center of your screen until it turns gray, or go to Tools, Track Changes, or press CONTROL-SHIFT-E.

Yes, you are in an option that "Tracks Changes."  This is Word option for parties to make edits and show the edits for proofreading.  To get out of this mode, for Word 2007, click the "Review" mode and change the option to "Original.  For Word 2003, here's a link to get to help you out:

By the way, I wouldn't change the mode to "Original" - I would Accept all changes on the Reviewing toolbar.  That way, the recipient won't be able to see all the changes you've made.  I assume that's what you want.

Thank you for the points too.
