Does anyone know how to turn off author info in a Word document? My Mac version Help  says go to the Info tab under File. Online articles show the same thing. But there's no Info tab anywhere in the File tab. My MS Office is current revision, registered under my name, so author name is auto embedded. This has never tripped me up on previous entries, but always nags at me. Just don't want author name to inadvertently pop up somewhere in the file when I submit my story.

Hmmm...mine (which is an older version of MS Office) has the info tab. I click on 'check for issues' for it to find and remove author data. Of note, I don't use a Mac, so this info may not be super helpful.

Thanks David. That's exactly what the Mac version of "help" shows, but the info tab's not there. I think I'll edit it on my work laptop, which has the PC version. I'm sure it will show up there.
