I have just upgraded from Office 2000 to Office 2003. When I revise English for clients I usually send two files - one with all the revision marks visible and the other with the revisions (insertions and deletions) built in.

I am struggling to work out how to do this with Word 2003. It's easy enough to integrate all the changes (insertions and deletions) I have made into the document, but every time I open the document the changes always appear as insertions and deletions.

What I want to do is send the file to the customer so that when they open it, they automatically see just the final version, not the version with all the insertions and deletions highlighted.

Would appreciate if anybody can help with this.

Rgds,

Colin.

Hi Colin Mar 21, 2006

Go to View > Toolbars and check the 'Review' toolbar so you'll have all necessary buttons at hand. To accept all changes in the document choose a button with a blue tick (you'll see the hints while moving the mouse over the buttons).

It depends on... Mar 22, 2006

...what you want to do. Following the previous suggestion, you will delete tracking marks and all the information Word must use if you or your customer later want to see tracking marks.

So if you would like to keep your tracking marks but make them invisible, open the Reviewing toolbar and select Final in the left drop down. This will hide but keep tracking marks and will show you a picture of the document as if all changes were approved.
