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.

Pythaeus notes that as of the following dates both the StyleWriter (06-Jan-93) and the 13" Hi-Res RGB (14-Dec-92) will be discontinued and removed from price lists. I gather the StyleWriter has been in short supply in many places for quite some time in preparation for the release of the StyleWriter II, which will be faster, weirdly shaped in a different way, and capable of being shared among Macs on an AppleTalk network (shades of ShadowWriter, see above) by a program called GrayShare. So if you've been waiting for a StyleWriter, make sure you get your order changed to a StyleWriter II. The 13" monitors may be in slightly better supply, and if dealers are trying to get rid of them in favor of the new 14" monitors (same picture size, but a truly beautiful monitor) you may be able to find a lower price for the remaining 13" units.
