Default I removed grammar marks from my doc. Will they come up on another computer?

I just typed out a very long document and did a spelling and grammar check, after which I have removed all the red and green lines from my document.

I want to ask - if I send this to someone else and they open it on their system, will they see those lines again? If yes, what can I do to prevent that from taking place?

I'm no MVP, but I am curious, how did you 'remove' those lines? Have Word "Ignore" them? I'm not sure that kind of thing carries over to another Word installation.

FWIW, depending on what you're writing about, you can set a specific style in the doc not to subject to spell check and grammar check. For example I have a "code example" style in my docs. It's a monospace font that looks like it belongs in a text editor. Obviously, snippets of Java code etc. will fail spelling and grammar checks pretty badly. So I set that style to not be checked.

To do this, open the style's "Modify Style" window and click Format > Language. Then select the "Do not check spelling or grammar" box.

If you did that
• via a Spell/Grammar check and changing/ignoring reported errors; or
• by setting the proofing for the whole document to 'Do not check spelling or grammar',
the status will remain with the document when it's opened on another system. Naturally, though, the recipient can re-set the document to highlight any spelling/grammar errors.
