How do I get rid of corrections in Word document?

Someone emailed me a Word document that contains a record of corrections. That is, it shows some text "crossed out" and other text added. It looks like it's keeping track of 2 different versions of the document. I am trying to export it to a PDF and even in the PDF these corrections are showing up. How do I get rid of this and just show the final version?

That feature is called Track Changes, which at least on OS X is in the Tools menu (or accesible from the Reviewing toolbar). You have two options, the most straightforward is just accept all changes (Accept or Reject Changes > Accept all changes). You can also disable showing changes in printed documents if you want to keep these changes - available from the Highlight changes dialog.

"CTRL+SHIFT+E turns off ""Track Changes.""

That should allow you to output it cleanly.

Edit: Nope. I lied. The Reviewing Toolbar should show itself. On there is a drop-down with ""Final Showing Markup"", ""Final"", etc. Choose ""Final"" and you should be good to go."
