Style changes after comparing two documents in Java

I am merging two docx, it merges but inserted and deleted portion are in blue and red color. I need to keep previous style and font. Also I don’t want Markup area in output.docx.
I can use settings.setDeletedItemsStyle(); but I need previous style.
I used changes[i].setAction(ComparisonAction.Accept); but it is not working.

Is there any other alternative for this?
