Track Changes Won't Go Away

Work 2002

Client is working with a form (uses form fields and is protected) and is
saving this as a template. If you open the template (filename.dot)
everything looks fine. However, if you run the template to get a new
document, either Track Changes or Show Markup is one. We see boxes from the
right margin with lines going to the text to indicate font or attribute
changes. We also seen boxes to indicate deleted text and new field codes.

No matter what we try to do we can't fix this.

We inserted into a new document.
We copied to a new document.
We unprotected, double clicked TRK on the status bar to disable it and View
| Markup to disable it.

It is as though there is something in the protecting of the document that
causes these previous changes to be shown. I do not understand at all what
is happening here. Can anyone enlighten me.

With track changes turned on in the template, and the document unprotected,
accept all changes. Then turn off track changes and protect your template.
The problem should go away in new documents generated from the template.
(Existing documents would need to have the same thing done.)

Thank you, Charles. Right on track again. It's one of those things that's
on the toolbar and NOT on any menu. Because I couldn't find it on a menu I
was pursuing other avenues. The client says to tell Charles a big THANK YOU
from her, too!
