Inserting comments

Microsoft Word provides several tools for document collaboration. One of these features allows you to insert comments into a document and provide suggestions to the document's author without changing the original text.

To insert a comment:

  • Position your cursor next to the word where you would like to insert a comment.
  • Select InsertactionComment from the main menu. The Reviewing toolbar will appear at the top of the page, and a comment balloon will appear in the margin.
  • Type your comment in the balloon.
  • Click outside the balloon.
