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.

If you regularly attend technology or engineering conferences, you might enjoy editor Glenn Fleishman’s account at Boing Boing of the recent XOXO Festival in Portland, Oregon. XOXO brought people who make things together with those who have new methods of reaching customers, an audience, fans, or colleagues directly, such as Kickstarter and Etsy. Beyond the content, the conference captured a magic that’s rarely found in such events.favicon follow link
