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.

Mailplane 3.2.1

Send Article to a Friend

Uncomplex has released Mailplane 3.2.1, a small update that amends the previous release’s inline image feature addition (see “Mailplane 3.2,” 5 May 2014). Version 3.2.1 adds an option to enable or disable the inline image insertion via Preferences > Attachments. The release also automatically reduces inline images if they are wider than 500 pixels, ensures the cursor won’t disappear while composing a message, and fixes a bug that caused Mailplane to crash when opening a document with no set default app. ($24.95 new, free update, 17.3 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
