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.

Poll Preview: Browser Brouhaha -- This week's release of Internet Explorer 5.0 for the Mac (see review below) and Netscape's recent announcement that the Netscape 6 (possibly not for the Mac, to judge from comments on TidBITS Talk) would be available in beta within a month raises that perennial question: Which Macintosh Web browsers do you use on a regular basis? We'll be especially curious to compare the results of this poll to our Web logs. Make sure your usage patterns are represented this week on our home page! [ACE]
