Hide markup and comments in Word


Word 2013

Turn off Track Changes to stop adding more changes to a document. You can hide existing tracked changes temporarily by choosing No Markup in the Display for Review box. That helps you see what the document will look like when it’s final, but changes will show up again the next time anyone opens it. Get your document ready to share by permanently accepting or rejecting tracked changes, and deleting comments.

  • To review changes one at a time, click Review then Accept or Reject. To finalize the document all at once, click Accept All Changes or Reject All Changes.

  • On the Review tab, in the Comments group, click the arrow below Delete, then click Delete All Comments in Document.

  • To use Document Inspector to find remaining tracked changes, comments, and other information you may not want to share, on the Review tab, click Check for Issues, then Inspect Document.
