Stylin' a Word Comment Balloon

If you work with Word's Comment feature, you may find that the comment-balloon text is too small to work with, or you may just want some variety. To modify the style, choose Format > Style. From the List pop-up menu, choose All Styles. Select Balloon Text from the Style list. Modify the style as you like, and then click Apply. I like Arial Narrow, 12 point.

Review a Book, Get a Free Ebook -- We were happy to hear from our friends at Peachpit Press that Joe Kissell's "Real World Mac Maintenance and Backups," which contains "Take Control of Maintaining Your Mac" and "Take Control of Mac OS X Backups," went into a second printing recently. The book was selling extremely well on Amazon.com for a while after it first came out, with very high sales rankings. But then Amazon ran out of stock, and with a 1 to 3 week wait, people stopped ordering, and the book lost its momentum. Curses! So, we're trying an experiment to see if we can get Joe's book back on track, along with Sharon Zardetto Aker's "Real World Mac OS X Fonts," which contains "Take Control of Fonts in Mac OS X" and "Take Control of Font Problems in Mac OS X." Here's the deal. If you have purchased one of these print books, or one of the ebooks included in these print books, and you write a review on Amazon of either print book, let me know via email and I'll send you a free ebook of your choice.
