5.1. Comments

Often when reviewing someone else's document, you'll want to add comments without making them a part of the text itself. You'll have a query for the author, an idea, a suggestion, or a joke—the kind of thing that you'd write in the margin or on a sticky note if you were working on paper. Fortunately, the days of typing boldfaced or bracketed comments directly into the text are over.

5.1.1. Adding Comments

To add just a single comment in Word, select the text that you're commenting on and then choose Insert→Comment (or press Option--A). The Comments pane opens at the bottom of the document window, as shown in Figure 5-1, with an insertion point at the beginning of a newly numbered comment marked with your initials. The text you originally selected now appears marked with a yellow highlight. Type your comment; press F6 to return to the main (upper) pane of the document window (or just click there).
