Leaving comments in a Word document is a good way to leave comments on an item you are examining. If the problem you commented on has been resolved, you can delete the note to keep things clean. Here’s how.
How to add comments in Word
Then enter the comment you want to leave. That’s all we can say about it. Repeat this step for as many comments as you need to leave in the room.
How to respond to comments in Word
If you want to leave comments on the comment that has already been left, simply hover over the comment and click the “Reply” button.
Now enter your answer and save the answer.
How to delete or resolve comments in Word
Resolving a comment retains the comment but displays it as “Resolved” so that those collaborate on the piece can see that the problem has been fixed. Deleting the comment removes it completely.
If you want other teammates to know that a problem has been addressed, use “Solve”. If you want to clean up some comments in the sidebar, use “Delete”.
To resolve a comment, hover over the comment and click the “Resolve” button.
The comment will remain in the sidebar, but it will be grayed out to indicate that the comment has been resolved.
To delete a comment, right-click on the item and select “Delete”.
Alternatively, select the comment to delete, go to the “Comments” group on the “Review” tab and select the “Delete” button.
If you have a lot of comments in the Word document that you want to delete all at the same time, select the arrow under “Delete” and then select the option “Delete all comments in the document”.
How to reopen a comment in Word
If a comment was previously marked as resolved but you need to leave other comments, you can reopen it by right-clicking it and selecting “Reopen Comment”.
This only works if the comment has been marked as “Resolved” and not deleted.
