Registry fix to remove margin marks or crop marks on page corners, courtesy of Jay Freedman

Jay:

I want to thank you for your registry "hack" to remove corner marks:

http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.word.docmanagement/browse_thread/thread/a0836eb1c8ac425a/cc38d8ccab08d07f?lnk=st&q="Jay+Freedman"+marks+Kris&rnum=1&hl=en#cc38d8ccab08d07f

Manually editing the following key fixed my problem with margin marks:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\ LanguageResources

Leaving 1033 as "On", but changing another one to "Off" did the trick.

My problems began when I copied and pasted a German e-mail into Word. That
must have triggered a language addition. Language Tools only shows U.S.
English as enabled, but I had an entry for 4100 that was turned "On".
Changing it to "Off" removed the marks.

Have you considered amending the Knowledge Base Article to include editing
the registry?

Thanks for letting us know that it worked for you.

I can suggest an addition to the KB article, but I can't change it
myself.
