Comments

Comments are annotations that you and other document reviewers can add to a document. These notes can be viewed onscreen but don’t print unless you want them to.

To insert a comment

1.
Select the text for which you want to insert a comment (Figure 14).

Figure 14. Start by selecting the text you want to enter a comment about.


2.
Choose Insert > Comment (Figure 15).

Figure 15. Choose Comment from the Insert menu.


A few things happen: A comment marker (colored parentheses) appears around the selected text, the Reviewing toolbar appears, the window splits, and the insertion point moves to the Reviewing pane at the bottom of the window under a color-coded heading with your name (Figure 16).

3.
Type in your comment. It can be as long or as short as you like (Figure 17).
