Adding and Managing Comments Effectively

Comments allow people who collaborate on documents to ask questions, provide suggestions, insert notes, and generally annotate a document’s contents without directly inserting any information into the body of the document. When you work with a document that contains comments, you can display the comments in the Reviewing Pane while viewing the document in any view or in a margin balloon if you’re working in Web Layout, Print Layout, or Reading Layout view. When the Reviewing Pane is open, it is displayed below the document’s editing window, along the bottom of the Word window. When you use balloons to display information, the balloons appear next to your document’s contents in either the left or right margin. Figure 27-3 shows a sample document in Print Layout view, with a comment balloon and the Reviewing Pane visible.

Figure 27-3. You can display color-coded comments in comment balloons or in the Reviewing Pane; in both views, each comment includes the initials of the person who created the comment and a numeric identifier.
