Re: MS Word "Mark-up" won't go away!

You have to realize that hiding the markup is not the same as getting rid of
it. You must turn Track Changes off and then Accept All Changes in Document
and Delete All Comments in Document. If you want to keep a marked-up copy,
then accept changes and delete comments in a copy of the document.
