On 7/21/17 I bought Microsoft Office 365P for Apple. It works fine. In WORD I must have erroneously pushed a button, and now every document I create has red paragraph symbols everywhere. How do I get rid of those symbols?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact model of your computer? And what operating system are you running?

I have a MacMini with Apple operating system.

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

I cannot find the details on operating system.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Operating sytem--MacOSSierra 10.12.6.

Turn off track changes

You turn Track Changes off the same way you turn it on:

Click Review > Track Changes.

Remove tracked changes

Next, permanently remove any markup in your document. The only way to do this is to accept or reject changes and delete comments.

Click Review > Next > Accept or Reject.

Word keeps or removes the change and then goes to the next one. To accept all the changes at the same time, click the arrow below Accept and click Accept All Changes.
