If you’re writing an essay, book, memo, or something else that may be time consuming, it’s great to add a comment to relay internal or collaborative thoughts. What if you’re thinking, “You know what, on the next few pages tomorrow, I should focus on this certain topic,” or similar. You don’t want to forget about it so adding a comment is a great reminder to yourself, and you can add it on the specific page you want to carry through that comment on. Similarly, a comment will help others you’re sharing the document with to see what you’re thinking about on certain paragraphs and pages.
Here’s the easiest way to add a comment to your Word document:
- Open your Word document.
- Make sure that the Reviewing Pane is visible at the bottom of Word or that the Comment balloons are visible at the right-hand side of your doc.
- Highlight the text of the comment you’d like to paste into your doc.
- Place cursor where you want the comment to be inserted.
