Using Version 3.0b34 (34).

Currently when I edit something with critic markup on the comment brackets, {>><<}, get added to each edit. Most of the time I need to then select and delete them. Can I turn off this "feature"?

Thank you,

    These are added for two reasons:

    1) To insert a datestamp for change tracking

    2) To allow you to explain the change, if desired.

    I'll add a preference to disable the comment, but I am working on some features for the Pro version (not ready for release yet) that will make it very useful if you keep the timestamps inside those CM comment fields….
