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.

Mellel 2.0 Ships -- The Israeli company RedleX has released Mellel 2.0, a significant upgrade to their word processor with a slew of new features aimed largely at working with long and complex documents. Mellel 2.0 now supports sections and columns, includes extensive hyphenation dictionaries, does a better job of importing and exporting RTF to and from Mellel's proprietary file format, controls widows and orphans, and offers a Keep with Next option. It also provides automatic table sizing, background colors, facing pages, more flexible paragraph controls, and more, although revision tracking and commenting features aren't mentioned. Mellel 2.0 costs $50; upgrades for registered users are free and a free trial version is available as a 13.4 MB download. [ACE]
