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.

Optima System has released PageSpinner 2.1, the latest version of its shareware, text-oriented HTML authoring tool. Version 2.1 offers significant performance improvements and a revved-up text editor, along with support for HTML 4.0 and simultaneous multi-browser previews, backup commands, improved scriptability, and code-free assistance creating roll-over images and new windows via JavaScript. PageSpinner also comes with good online help and sensible examples ideal for Web authors who aren't afraid of HTML tags, but want a friendly environment that can both introduce Web authoring concepts and support sophisticated development. (We looked at PageSpinner 2.0.1 in "Spinning the Web Part I: Trade-offs and PageSpinner" in TidBITS 384.) PageSpinner is still $25 shareware; version 2.1 is a free upgrade to users who registered PageSpinner 2.x after 01-Jun-97, and other owners may qualify for a $15 upgrade pricing through March of 1999. PageSpinner 2.1 is a 1.8 MB download.
