Prepare Your Word 2007 Documents for Distribution with "Inspect Document"

New to Word 2007 is the "Prepare" category that lets you, among other things, inspect your document before you send it to others. We stumbled upon it while trying to find a way to turn off Track Changes which seemed more straightforward in Word 2003. You can find it under the Office logo. To turn off Track Changes in particular, go to the Office logo > Prepare > Inspect Document. You'll be given the option to turn off Track Changes. Bear in mind that this also turns off all comments and markup-- there's no way to pick and choose which editing features you want visible or disabled.

How-To-Geek has a nice step-by-step article with screen shots detailing how to use this feature: Prepare your Word Document for Mass Distribution.
