Even if Tracked Changes is currently turned off, there's a possibility that your document contains colored underlines and strikethrough, indicating insertions and deletions that were made as suggestions while Track Changes was turned on.

The markings are visible to anyone who chooses All Markup or Simple Markup in the Tracking section of the Review tab.

Simple Markup

Remove the markings by accepting or rejecting the changes. Use the buttons in the Changes section of the Review tab.

  • Previous and Next take you from one change to the next.
