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.

 
 

Emailer 2.0 Beta

Send Article to a Friend

Emailer 2.0 Beta -- Claris has announced a public beta of Emailer 2.0, which now stores all its messages in a single file (eliminating serious performance and storage problems with earlier versions) and features enhanced filtering capabilities. Although the Emailer 2.0 beta includes many improvements, my quick tests show it's only stable enough for adventurous users. The download is about 5 MB. [GD]
