Default Show comments inline in text?

Hello,

Is is possible to have comments displayed inline in the text? I have seen
how to display edits/changes inline but cannot figure out how to show the
comments that way. Thank you in advance for any helpful advice.

Thumbs up Answer: Show comments inline in text?

Note: This process may vary slightly depending on the version of Microsoft Word you are using.

Sorry, no. Word shows comments in balloons or in the Reviewing Pane, but not
inline.

If you know that's what you want, you could type all your comments as
tracked inserts. You can temporarily change your name in the User
Information section of the options dialog (for instance, add a character to
it), and then you can use the Tracked Changes option to display only the
changes from that "author" to see inline "comments".

Thank you Jay. I will do that in future. Unfortunately that won't help with
the document I have already commented. Ah well ...

Thank you for the prompt and helpful suggestion.

Cheers,
Fraser

You can use a macro such as the following:

Sub InsertNotesInText()
Dim c As Comment
For Each c In ActiveDocument.Comments
c.Reference.InsertAfter "[" & c.Range.Text & "]"
Next c
End Sub

For assistance, see http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm.

Run the macro to insert the comment text. Make sure not to save the document
unless you want to save the "inline" comments (but, of course, you can print
it or Save As).

Thank you Stefan,

I will try that on the next occasion when I have to extract the comments. It
seems that Word can be made to do almost anything via macros. I appreciate
all of the helpful advice.

Cheers,
Fraser

Hi Mr. Stefan Blom

What if add Highlight in the c.Range.Text?

It doesn't work with me, please correct me.

Sub InsertNotesInText()
Dim c As Comment
For Each c In ActiveDocument.Comments
c.Reference.InsertAfter "[" & c.Range.Text & "]"
c.Range.Text.Highlightcolour=True
Next c
End Sub

Many Thanks.
