Finish Edited Documents


Once you’ve finished editing your documents, you may want to delete annotations, unlock pages, turn off revision marking, and make revisions permanent. To do so, click the Editor’s ToolKit menu, then click “Finish Edited Documents.”

The program will ask if you want to finish the active document, all open documents, or all documents in a folder. If you need to finish all documents in a folder, first copy them to a working folder called something like “Copy.” That will leave your original documents intact in case you need something to go back to. Also, make sure only the documents you want to finish are in the Copy folder. Then you won't inadvertently finish, say, some press-ready documents that you have spent many hours editing and formatting. Show all types of files to be sure.

In addition, make sure none of the documents is protected or read only. Editor’s ToolKit finishes your documents and then saves them. If the documents are protected or read only, the program will not work. You may also run into problems if your files need to be converted into Microsoft Word from a different word-processing format. Please make sure all of your files are in Microsoft Word format before running the program.

If you select the option to finish all the documents in a folder, the program presents a dialog box that allows you to select the folder to which you have copied the documents to be finished (leaving your original documents safe in their original folder). After you have carefully selected the Copy folder (don’t get the wrong one!), click the OK button or press ENTER to continue.

Finally, if you’ve loaded FileCleaner, NoteStripper, and QuarkConverter as global templates (these programs are included with Editor’s ToolKit Plus), you’ll be able to run them. The program will automatically delete annotations, unlock pages, turn off revision marking, and make revisions permanent.
