CS Odessa Sponsoring TidBITS -- We're happy to announce our latest sponsor, Computer Systems Odessa, makers of the intelligent diagramming and business drawing program ConceptDraw. Unlike most graphics programs, which provide access only to the visible attributes of objects, ConceptDraw lets you not only access all of the internal data that describes a given graphic object, but also lets you use formulas to create relationships between objects and give them customized behavior. The result is a fascinating program - grab a demo copy and check out Matt Neuburg's review, "Make the Connection with ConceptDraw" in TidBITS-553, for a more detailed description. CS Odessa is also unusual in the Macintosh world by virtue of their geographic location - they're based in Ukraine, and were the first company from there to exhibit at last month's Macworld Expo. It's great to see companies from outside the U.S. contributing so significantly to the Macintosh world, and CS Odessa is even helping revitalize the Russian translation of TidBITS. [ACE]
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.
