Easily Review Track Changes Comments From Many Authors


Q. When I send a memo to my three partners for review, they use Word’s Track Changes to add their comments and make changes. When I’m ready to review their comments, I have to handle one reviewer at a time. Isn’t there a way to do it all at once and yet keep the identity of each person? It would save lots of time.

A. You’re right; it would be a time-saver. But if you have a version of Word earlier than 2002, you’re out of luck. Your only choices are to do each individually or accept or reject them all as a group. In 2002 Word shows a list of reviewers, each with a check mark. Each time you select one, its check mark disappears.
