Comment is a part of Microsoft Word that can be very useful for long files. Especially for files shared between several people. In this way, you can select a part of the text and add your opinion about it to the file. That is, without changing the shape of the file.
It's easy to add comments to Microsoft Word, and it's not difficult at all. But if you haven't used this feature before, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with it and then post your notes or comments in long and large files.
In this article, we will teach you how to insert comments. If you use Microsoft Word – especially shared – don't miss it at all.
Post a comment in Word
Adding comments to Word files is easy. It even allows you to easily add a few comments. To do this, just follow the steps below:
1. Select the part of the text of the article in which you want to post a comment. If you do not want to select a specific part of the text, move the mouse pointer to the desired point.
2. Select the Review tab.
3. Tap New Comment. Now the comments section is created for the selected part of the text or where the marker is located.
4. Put your opinion in the created place. Whenever you're done, click on the comment outside the created small window. The comment will now be displayed on the right side of the file.
A few tips about comments in Word
- Comments can be edited but have fewer options. Basic changes such as bolding words or writing words in Italian are available to users.
- It is possible to add images to comments. But the size is so small that the recipient will probably have trouble. Using large images will make the right part of the images cropped.
- When a comment is inserted, the text will always remain highlighted. A folder connects the highlighted text to the inserted text. If another user runs a shared file, they will see the text in the same way.
Every comment you make will be listed with your name in Word. But you can also change your name:
- In Windows, go to File <Options <General and then scroll down to Personalize your copy of Microsoft Office and change your name.
- In the Mac operating system, you will see this section in Preferences> User Information.
When you get to the mentioned sections, after entering the name, be sure to select the option below the name to force Microsoft Word to use this name for you.Source
