Limiting the Display of Reviewer Comments

(last updated May 2, 2017)

Each comment you enter into a document includes the initials of the person who created the comment. Word keeps track of who entered the comments, and can easily show you the comments of a specific person. To take advantage of this way of viewing comments, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure that you are viewing comments.
  2. Display the Review tab of the ribbon.
  3. In the Tracking group, click the Show Markup drop-down list. When you choose the Reviewers option from the list, you see a list of different reviewers who have made comments in the document.
  4. Hide or display comments from individual reviewers by selecting their names from the list.

I have a file that includes text that needs to be removed. All the text that needs to be removed was highlighted and marked with comments. Since the file is extremely long, and lengthy sections are marked with comments, is there a way to remove the comment and the corresponding text without having to do each of the selections separately? I do not want to accidentally Miss any text that should be removed.
