Default track changes tool - how to save/convert final version without comments

Hi there,

I received a document that had comments and changes from
other co-auhtors - I've added my changes and the document
has now been approved for publication...how do I save
this final document in regular 'black ink' (minus all the
footnotes and track changes links in the margins - but
obviously saving the changes.

Thanks in advance for your help!

down menu you use to access these commands in Word 2002?

Thanks again,

On the Reviewing toolbar, click the arrow beside Accept Change to get the
menu that shows Accept All Changes in Document. Click the arrow beside
Reject Change/Delete Comment to get Delete All Comments in Document. I would
have provided this information in my original reply if you had mentioned
which version of Word you were using.

The problem is not only that the Track Changes feature changed radically
between Word 2000 and Word 2002 but that I never used Track Changes before
Word 2002 and so am not familiar with the dialog and procedures in earlier
versions.

Suzanne - yes - it did change a lot - so much so in fact
that if you don't know to load/work with the reviewing
toolbar, you may end up thinking that the track tools
functionality had disappeared!

Got my document squared away - many thanks for your help.

Luckily the Reviewing toolbar is displayed by default in any document
containing comments or tracked changes (not to mention a lot of other times
when you don't want it to be!). Of course, if you close it without looking
at it (as we often do with unexpected/unwanted toolbars--like swatting at
gnats without looking at them), then you don't get a chance to find out what
it's for.
