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.

TidBITS Announces Reorganization

Send Article to a Friend


TidBITS Announces Reorganization -- Following in the footsteps of such industry leaders as Apple Computer, TidBITS today announced plans to lay off thousands of employees. "It's a bit like selling a stock short," explained TidBITS publisher Adam Engst. "First we lay off the employees, take advantage of a massive tax write-off, and then we can use the money to hire them." TidBITS also announced a shareholders meeting to be held this time next year; bring a dessert to share. [ECA]
