how to turn off document publishing?


Every file in one of our document libraries is displaying a warning message "Changes were made to this file. Publish to update changes." It is even doing it for PDFs that have been uploaded. How do I turn this off?

Try to disable the check-in check-out feature.

You probably have minor versioning enabled.  You should be able to remove the publish button by using major version only.  Aside from that, I have the same question.  We want our users to have minor version but is there a way to 'hide' that republish button and note in the info panel?


FYI - The 'Publish' button is now branded as 'Republish'.  I can't find any literature on this by MS outside of a mention for site pages.  What about files?
