    I have a large number of docx files to convert to pdf and want to do it in an automated fashion. I am evaluating programs from Black Ice and Foxit. Both seem to work very well. My one issue is that docx files with comments are converted in a fashion that shows the comments. I do not need the comment information but do not want to have to open all of them to remove it. Can anyone suggest a way to scrub the information from the files as a group? A sample of the information I want to remove is shown in the attachment.

    Thanks

    You can use a macro to loop through the directory containing all the documents and remove the comments from each one prior to performing the conversion.
