In order to secure anonymity in hand-in documents, we recommend that you remove information about authorship in Word, before saving your document as a pdf file:
- Klick "File" when in the document:
- This will lead you to the following menu. Klick "Check for issues", then "Inspect Document".
- A checkbox will now appear. Click "Inspect".
- The program now checks your document for any personal information or hidden metadata, and will give you the result of this check within short time. Klick "Remove All" button in the window, and all of the personal information will be removed.
If you use Mac, please follow these instructions.
By following these instructions you have removed all your personal information in your document. Choose "Save as" and pdf as file format, and your file is ready for delivery.
