Speed Doubler 8.1 Coming in March -- Connectix has posted a Speed Doubler 8.1 FAQ that explains why Speed Doubler 8.0 and 8.0.1 don't work with Mac OS 8.1 and claims that a free update will be available in March. In short, the differences between Mac OS 8.0 and 8.1 are sufficiently great that Connectix designed Speed Doubler to disable any of its components that could cause conflicts under Mac OS 8.1. [ACE]
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.
