Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon

If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.

 
 

Prodigy/Internet

Send Article to a Friend

Prodigy/Internet email details are still fuzzy, but Jeff Needleman <needje@msen.com> said that the software for Macs to receive Internet email works fine, but the software for sending only works for DOS machines. So, Prodigy has to decide if it will allow one-way Internet access for Macintosh users, at least until a version of the software that can send Internet email appears on the Mac side of things. Why do we suspect this will slow the entire process down a good bit?
