Default MS Word Suppress Printing of Comment Balloons

I would like to suppress the printing of the comment balloons
located in the right margin of my document. I want them to appear while on
the screen, but not print. Any thoughts?

Default MS Word Suppress Printing of Comment Balloons

In the Print dialog box, for "Print what," choose "Document" (as opposed to
"Document showing markup" which is the default in a document with comments
and/or tracked changes).

Thank you. Is there a way to make that setting the default for all users of
that particular document?

No, not really. You have very little control over how others choose to view
or print the document.

I'd create a separate document without comments.

Hi JCarr22,

Although you can't set this as default configuration in Word, you can choose the macro way.
Paste the following macro into the VBA editor and save it.

Sub PrintDocWithoutComments()
Application.PrintOut FileName:="", Range:=wdPrintAllDocument, Item:= _
wdPrintDocumentContent, Copies:=1, Pages:="", PageType:=wdPrintAllPages, _
Collate:=True, Background:=True, PrintToFile:=False, PrintZoomColumn:=0, _
PrintZoomRow:=0, PrintZoomPaperWidth:=0, PrintZoomPaperHeight:=0
End Sub

Then you can assign a button or key for the macro for future use.

For more detailed information, you can refer to this article:

Hope it helps!
