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.

 
 

Carbon Copy Cloner 3.4.2

Bombich Software has released Carbon Copy Cloner 3.4.2; despite the minor version hop, this release includes dozens of bug fixes that affect several areas of the backup utility’s functionality, including scheduling, the handling of network filesystems, access permission management, and so on. In at least one case, the fixes address issues that could cause a restored volume to be un-bootable under some circumstances. A number of minor feature tweaks round out the update.
