Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon

If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.

 
 

Now Up-to-Date & Contact 3.9.2 Now Available

Send Article to a Friend

Now Up-to-Date & Contact 3.9.2 Now Available -- Power On Software has released a free update to Now Up-to-Date & Contact 3.9.2. The update changes the behavior of how Now Up-to-Date & Contact synchronize with Palm OS handhelds, fixes some bugs related to synchronizing, and fixes other bugs in the QuickContact and QuickDay control panels that provide fast access to your contact list and calendar even if the main programs aren't running. The QuickDay and QuickContact fixes are minor (it's mainly nice to be able to hold down the Option key to dismiss all menu bar reminders in QuickDay again), but they're the only reason users of Now Up-to-Date & Contact 3.8 who don't use Palm devices might want to upgrade, since the previous changes rolled into 3.9 were related solely to Palm synchronization. The updater is a 1.3 MB download. [ACE]
