Btw, I of course also went and accepted all changes, turned off tracking etc. in Word, it doesn't make the tiniest difference!
You can switch of this check in Studio and open a document that has track changes and lots of comments.
Then choose the version of word you want, for example
Microsoft Word 2007>Other Settings
Then check the option called;
Process documents with non accepted or rejected changes
This will allow you to open a word document that is still in progress during the authoring cycle. An added advantage of doing this, assuming that you don't want to give your client the opportunity to double check this is the correctly finished document first, is that in the real time preview for word you can see the changes, and hover over the commented text to see the comments made in the word document.
I hope this helps.
