Editing notes using OneNote app adds my initials next to what I changed

Original Title: "Sync OneNote app"

This May Be Confusting Microsoft,


But when i create or edit a document on my onenote android app amd sync it with my computer it will give me my initials next to what i edited and it will be highlited. it is very annoying and i want to know if there is a way for me to turn it off. i added a picture to show you what is going on but it is really bothering me and i want it to stop


C:\Users\Kemp\Pictures\One Note



it gets highlighted automatically and my initals are added whenever i use the onenote app and sync it to my computer


please explain the problem! :D

Go to Share > Mark as Read and uncheck "Show Unread Changes in This Notebook". If you don't want to see initials, then click Share > Hide Authors.
