Poll Results: Apple of Your iFuture? Although many Macworld Expo attendees were expecting Steve Jobs to make hardware announcements (even the attendees not swayed by rumor sites), the major news turned out to be Apple's suite of new Internet services such as iTools and iCards. Despite the undeniable fact that Apple's new Internet services certainly aren't perfect (and we'll be looking at more of the concerns in a future issue), we've been impressed with their overall design and integration. So when we asked, "Do you plan to use any of Apple's new Internet services?" we weren't surprised to see that 82 percent of respondents answered yes. Apple has grabbed the interest of a lot of people with these Internet tools; let's hope they continue to polish the existing tools and offer new ones as well. [JLC]
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.
