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.

Tonya and I are deep into working on the fourth edition of Internet Starter Kit for Macintosh, which means that we're likely to be less responsive to email for a while.

If you're the author of a freely distributable freeware or shareware Internet program, I'd like to consider your program for inclusion on the CD that will come with the book. The same goes for commercial Internet programs with freely distributable demos. So, if you'd like to submit your program for inclusion on the CD, check out the Web form at:

<http://www.tidbits.com/iskm/cd_form/cd_submit_ form.html>

Similarly, if you are an Internet service provider (anywhere in the world) that supports PPP and would like to be included in the book and installer, send email to <iskm-providers@tidbits.com>. We'll collect names and send out more information when we have a Web signup form posted. [ACE]
