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.

 
 

Take Control of Upgrading to Panther Now in Dutch

Send Article to a Friend

Take Control of Upgrading to Panther Now in Dutch -- Our untiring Dutch translation team has gone beyond translating TidBITS each week to bring Dutch-speaking Macintosh users a translation of Joe Kissell's "Take Control of Upgrading to Panther." As with our other translations, it's $7.50, with a third of the price going to the translators. Continuing our policy of supporting our early adopters, Dutch speakers who already purchased the English version of "Take Control of Upgrading to Panther" are entitled to a free copy of the Dutch translation. If your English copy of the ebook has a Check for Updates button on the first page, click it to access the download page for the translation. If your copy of the ebook is too old to have a Check for Updates button, you may be able to download a new copy from eSellerate if you still have your receipt, or you may still have the free coupon code we sent to purchasers before we implemented the Check for Updates mechanism. We'll be sending a direct download link to readers in the Netherlands and Belgium as well, but if all else fails, please use the form on our FAQ page to ask Tonya for help. [ACE]
