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.

 
 

TidBITS Mailing List

Send Article to a Friend

Finally! After 101 issues and almost two years, we're setting up a mailing list so that you can receive TidBITS in your electronic mailbox. Thanks to some great folks at Simon Fraser University in Canada, you can now receive TidBITS directly rather than waiting for it to come through in comp.sys.mac.digest or snagging it from an FTP site a few days later. This will definitely be the fastest way to get TidBITS from now on. The mailing list should work for people on CompuServe as well, although probably not for people using the AppleLink gateway, since AppleLink has something like a 30K limit on incoming files, and although most issues are under 30K, I can't guarantee that all will fit through.

Subscription to the mailing list is extremely easy: just send an email message (you don't have to include a special Subject: line or special body text) to:

tidbits-subscription@sfu.ca

and you'll be automatically added to the mailing list. This list is not a discussion list; it is solely for distributing issues of TidBITS via email, so please do not use it to talk about TidBITS. I enjoy receiving comments and suggestions, but please send email to my personal account (ace@tidbits.halcyon.com) for that purpose. I include selected comments and suggestions in our weekly MailBITS column in TidBITS.
