Removing ALL revision bars

This may be an obvious question, but I can't find a way to do it........

When we make changes to a document we use change bars to show where the changes have been made. Of course on the next revision, these have to be removed to add new ones for the new revision.

When I select all and click off Change Bar in the Character Designer, it removes all but the ones in the tables. I have looked around, but can't find anything that removes them all. Also, sometimes even selecting the table cells, it doesn't remove them until I have hunted around in the table to see where the bar is. This is quite a process for some manuals.

Can I remove ALL change bars in a document?

Thanks,

ls

Select Format > Document > Change Bars. In the dialog, check Clear All Change Bars (No Undo), and click Set.

When I do this, the change bar goes away. I save and close the document. When opening the document again, the change bars are back.

Hi,

 

Is your document structured or unstructured?

I do not have any experience with structured documents, but it could be that the formatting of the document is applied again.

When the change bars are part of the paragraph formatting, then you could remove them with Format > Document > Change Bars, but when the paragraph formats are applied again (via your EDD), then they will be back.

 

Best regards

Thank you. It apparently is part of the formatting of the document from which I am importing. The content wasn't huge, so I recreated it.

 

Thanks again!
