ctrl+shift+e?

Assuming office 2k3

She's got track changes on

A toolbar pops up. It says "original showing markup" or "final showing markup", change it to original or final

Open a new document, copy the original text, and paste it in the new document by clicking "keep text only" or "match destination formatting."

Solution if you cant figure it out...

1) Press CTRL-A to select all the text in the document.
2) Press CTRL-C to put it in your clipboard.
3) Open up Notepad and press CTRL-V to paste into Notepad.
4) Press CTRL-A to select all the text again.
5) Press CTRL-C to copy all the text.
6) Re-Open Word, Start a New Document, Press CTRL-V and it should all look normal.

She will have to go through and format it properly and underline/italicize any words that she had before, but it should all be normal black text again.

Heh, looks like my response was a little long-winded.

I'm surprised they didn't demand pics of the GF before helping you.
