No Issue Next Week -- So we can all spend some relaxing time with our families and friends over the Thanksgiving holidays here in the U.S., we won't be publishing an issue of TidBITS next week on 02-Dec-02. I will continue moderating TidBITS Talk, and we'll be working on this year's annual gift issue during the extra week. We'll publish the next issue of TidBITS on 09-Dec-02, so until then, we hope those of you celebrating Thanksgiving have a great holiday! [ACE]
Close Word Comments Easily
If you don't like how precisely you must mouse in Microsoft Word 2008 to delete comment balloons, note that you can Control-click (right-click) a balloon to pop up a contextual menu. From the menu choose Delete Comment, and you're done.
Also, to get rid of all comments at once, choose Tools > Customize Keyboard and set up a keyboard shortcut to go with the DeleteAllComments command, available in the Tools category. Oddly, there's no Delete Comment keyboard customization option that I can find.
