Ilene Hoffman has once again posted the Robert Hess Memorial Macworld Expo Events List. If you're planning on attending Macworld Expo in New York City from 07-Jul-98 through 10-Jul-98, check the list for public events to attend while you're there. If you are hosting an event at Macworld, make sure to fill out the Event Submission Form. Also, we encourage anyone planning an event to read "Macworld Geek Party Guide" from TidBITS 415 for hints and tips on how to throw a successful trade show party, something that's done all too infrequently.
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.
