Can't turn off change history on imported Word doc [closed]

I imported a Word2003 document and the change history displays by default. I can't seem to find a control to turn off the change history display. How can I do that? Otherwise I can't view the document as it would be if the changes are accepted.

Also, there are some font discrepancies. The section numbers are a different font than the rest of the document.

Finally I don't see the page footer which should contain the page number.

Does Edit > Changes > Show not suppress the display of the changes? There are several open bug reports for issues with footers and with sections, although most appear to relate to DOCX. Bug fdo#38639 and fdo#44063 may be related.

The suggestion for changes works fine. I just couldn't find the control. Thanks I will look at the bug reports
