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.

 
 

Eastgate Systems Releases Storyspace 2

Send Article to a Friend

Eastgate Systems Releases Storyspace 2 -- Eastgate Systems, long-time publishers of hypertext tools and hypertext writings, has released Storyspace 2, a total rewrite of the company's innovative hypertext editor (see TidBITS-095, an entire issue devoted to the program). Storyspace 2 is now PowerPC-native, supports drag & drop throughout the program, uses contextual menus, and boasts a multiple undo feature. Improved typography, new map views, and curved link lines make working with complex hypertext webs easier. Finally, customizable, template-based HTML support and a new Storyspace reader offer better ways to distribute hypertext writings to readers. Updates to Storyspace 2 for registered users are free if you purchased after 01-Jul-00 and $95 otherwise; new copies cost $295. A 3.6 MB demo is available. [ACE]
