Farallon is Back! Once one of the major networking companies in the Macintosh world, Farallon last year changed its name to Netopia, Inc. and began to focus more on the Internet. Now the Farallon division is spinning out of Netopia as an independent company that will focus on Ethernet cards, switches, hubs, and related products, including the EtherMac iPrint Adapter LT for connecting the new iMac to LocalTalk printers and Macs. Netopia will continue to focus on Internet products, including Netopia Internet Routers, Netopia Virtual Office, and Timbuktu Pro. We're pleased to welcome Farallon back, especially since it's a great sign for the continued recovery of the Macintosh market from last year's doldrums. [ACE]
Delete All Comments in Word in a Flash
You needn't clear comments in a Word document one by one. Instead, bring out the big guns to delete all of them at once:
1. Chose Tools > Keyboard Shortcuts.
2. Under Categories, select Tools.
3. Under Commands, select DeleteAllCommentsInDoc.
4. With the insertion point in the "Press new keyboard shortcut" field, press keys to create a keyboard shortcut. (I use Control-7)
5. Click the Assign button.
6. Click OK.
You can now press your keyboard shortcut to zap out the comments.
The steps above work in Word 2008; they likely work nearly as described in older versions of Word.
