Regardless of whether Tracked Changes is currently dormant, there’s a chance that your document has coloured underlines and strikethrough, flagging insertions and deletions that were created as suggestions while Track Changes was activated.
The markings are noticeable to anyone who selects All Markup or Simple Markup in the Tracking element of the Review tab.
Delete the markings by accepting or rejecting the changes. Select the buttons in the Changes section of the Review tab.
- Previous and Next move you from one change to the next.
- Accept enforces a permanent change.
- Reject eliminates a change.
