    I am tracking changes on a WPF RadRichtextBox so that I can see what changes a user has made, so that they can be approved by a supervisor later on. I don't want the first user to see the change tracking. 

    Is there a way that I can remove the ability for that user to accept their own changes. Currently they can change the document, accept the change and there is no indication that they have changed anything.

    I'm also looking to remove the visual indications of changes to the basic user. I have set Insert.Decoration = None and same for Delete.Decoration. But I am still getting tooltips with the revision details when the mouse is over the change.

    Hello Andrew,

    Editing a document as a final without showing any track changes markup is not supported in RadRichTextBox. We have logged a feature request in our public portal where you can vote for its implementation and track its status. Disabling the accept/reject functionality for a user is also among the nut supported functionalities. Here is the feedback item for this feature: Implement option to restrict users from Accept/Reject changes operations when editing documents with Track Changes enabled.

    To ensure the tooltips related to tracked changes are not shown, you can remove the layer responsible for showing them - RevisionsToolTipLayer. To achieve that, you will need to implement a custom UILayersBuilder and invoke the Remove() method passing it the layer you would like to remove in the BuildUILayersOverride() method. A similar approach is described in the Customizing Presentation through UI Layers topic and here is a sample code for removing a layer:
    public class CustomUILayersBuilder : UILayersBuilder
        protected override void BuildUILayersOverride(Telerik.Windows.Documents.UI.IUILayerContainer uiLayerContainer)

    Hope this information is useful.
