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.

 
 

NoteBook 1.2 v180 Beefs up HTML Export

Send Article to a Friend

NoteBook 1.2 v180 Beefs up HTML Export -- Circus Ponies Software has released NoteBook 1.2 v180, a minor upgrade to their elegant snippet keeper and information manager, which I've found handy for maintaining to do lists and taking notes on complex procedures. This version adds an option to export only changed pages to HTML, preserves text styling in HTML, and automatically converts a series of multiple spaces to a non-breaking space character. You can also now choose the format for images pasted into Notebook. Circus Ponies also fixed a number of bugs, including an annoying one with the licensing system that could cause a crash on the first launch after restarting your Mac. NoteBook 1.2 v180 is a 7.7 MB download that's free to registered users; new copies cost $50. [ACE]
