Close Word Comments Easily

If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.

Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.

 
 

KeyCue 6.0

Send Article to a Friend

With Ergonis Software’s just-released KeyCue 6.0, you can discover even hidden keyboard shortcuts in two common Adobe applications, and create your own custom shortcut descriptions to add to KeyCue’s onscreen keyboard shortcut cheat sheets. Previously, KeyCue would display all the keyboard shortcuts that appeared in menus; now you can download shortcut description files for hidden shortcuts in Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop, plus universal navigation and text-editing shortcuts. Ergonis will be making more shortcut description files available in the future, and you can also create your own. Other changes in KeyCue 6.0 include minor bug fixes. (€19.99 new, free upgrades for purchases within the last 2 years, 2.0 MB, release notes)
