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.

 
 

Adobe Lightroom 4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Adobe has released Lightroom 4.2 with a number of fixes applied to the professional photo cataloging and editing application. The update includes a fix for stacked photos that were hidden in both the Grid view and Filmstrip, resolves a problem with publishing videos to Facebook, ensures that Lightroom photo can be edited as JPEGs in Photoshop Elements, and fixes an issue with carriage returns in either the Title or Caption field that invalidated a Flickr upload. The release also adds support for 22 new cameras (though offering just preliminary support for the Nikon D600) and 43 new lenses. ($149 new, free update, 407 MB, release notes)
