There have been times when I have had to search for comment marks in a Word document. For instance, a client once sent me her large document that had been copied and pasted from another document and she was getting strange strings of text throughout her document. So I had to search the entire document (and it was huge) looking for comments or fragments of comments.
Fortunately, I could use Word’s powerful searching capabilities for my search. The simplest way to do this is using the Object Browser.
Follow the steps below to learn how:
- Click the Object Browser icon. You will find it just below the vertical scroll bar, at the bottom right-hand side of your Word window. A palette of objects by which you can search will be displayed.
- Click on the Comment object. It is depicted as a yellow sticky note. Once you click on it, the palette will disappear.
- Use the Previous and Next control, which are located above and below the Object Browser icon, to move to the next or previous comment.
