Palimpsest 2.1 Released -- Western Civilisation has released version 2.1 of Palimpsest, a hypertext application for managing and analyzing large collections of electronic documents. (For more information, see "Palimpsest 1.1 - Is There a Document in the House?" in TidBITS-364.) Palimpsest 2.1 supports the new look of Mac OS 8 and contextual menus, and offers better layout tools, more shortcuts, and enhanced printing. A subscription to Palimpsest costs $50 per year and includes full support plus all upgrades within that time. [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.
