Given the dominance of PCs in the world, most writers are probably using Microsoft Word as their main word processing program.
Lately we’ve received a slew of sample page submissions that have all the writer’s revisions clearly outlined in track changes.
Although interesting, we really don’t want to see your writing process.
Just a friendly reminder to make sure you submit a “clean” version. The way to do that is to go to Review, then accept (or reject as the case may be) all the changes in your manuscript. When all are cleared, a little window will pop up to say that there are no more changes or comments in the manuscript. Then it’s clean.
Then there is no way for someone to open up “final with mark up.”
