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.

 
 

Security Update 2011-005

Send Article to a Friend

In light of the recent security breach at certificate authority DigiNotar, Security Update 2011-005 removes DigiNotar from the list of trusted root certificates and from the list of Extended Validation (EV) certificate authorities, and configures default system trust settings so that DigiNotar’s certificates, including those issued by other authorities, are not trusted (for more info, see the links in "Firefox 6.0.2," 8 September 2011). The release is available for both Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and 10.7 Lion, and it updates both Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server. (Free, 869 KB for Snow Leopard, 15.59 MB for Lion, release notes)

It's a shame they have already started leaving Leopard behind.

Yes, but since Mozilla is still releasing these type of security updates to FF 3.6, I really don't need Apple to do so.
