I have created a MS Word Document with Bookmarks.

Tried to convert to PDF using Adobe PDF Services online.

It converts the document but shows the Markup changes that MS word tracks.

I've done everything possible to "hide markup" and "Turn off" Track Changes, but still the PDF conversion includes the "formatting"

Any ideas?

Solved!Source: Track changes in Word - Word "The only way to remove tracked changes in a document is to accept or reject them. Choosing No Markupin the Display for Review box helps you see what the final document will look like—but it only hides tracked changes temporarily. The changes are not deleted, and they’ll show up again the next time anyone opens the document. To delete the tracked changes permanently, accept or reject them."

In Word for Mac 2011 (which I am about to update), I get markup without any choice of accepting or rejecting. To remove these marks, tap on the Review Tab, then in the Tracking section, in the middle of the menu bar, you should see a blue icon next to Track Changes.  A click on the down arrow reveals a menu, which might have many items ticked. Click on them, one by one, to untick them.  That seems to get rid of the remaining markup.  Hoping that I now will get a clean PDF!

Sad to report that unchecking all the markups using the Show Markup icon on the Word 2011 for Mac Review menu bar did NOT work.  I'll just have to give up using this thoughtful Adobe service to the community, at least until I sort out the current newsletter so that I can install Word 2019.  Then, of course, comes trying to use it again to see if this site and Word 2019 play better together. 😟
