hello, I have a document (word 2003) that was given to someone for editing - after going through their changes, adding my own, accepting the changes of theirs that I wanted etc etc - now I want to submit the document "clean" to someone else - I know how to "hide" the markup - but I want to know if there's any way to clean it - to delete the markup so that the next person in the chain won't even see that there ever was any. is there any way to do this??
thanks!

Show the Reviewing toolbar (View/Toolbars) and select Final from the dropdown at its left hand end.

doesn't that just make it invisible? I want to make it so that the next person won't be able to see it even when they review it... I'm really asking if there's a way to "delete" the markup history - so that it's as if the doc wasn't reviewed and changed

Good point.

Use the button with the blue tick and select 'Accept All Changes in the Document' from its dropdown.

Hmm. It should, and it does for me.

Can you do it with a test document? Turn Track changes on, edit it  and see if the changes are accepted.

ok - figured this out - the markup is gone after accepting all changes - but comments in those balloons on the side are still there.  any way to get rid of those?
