Once you have added a comment to your document, Word will display that comment in a number of ways, depending on how you have configured your licensed copy of Word.
Having said that, the mainstay of Word is to keep the display as straightforward and easy as possible. You can, if you like, display your comments with a little more flair.
- You can format the text in your comment as you would format any text. You simply need to select the text in your comment and then avail yourself of the tools on your Ribbon to format with the font of your choice, bold, italics, etc.
- You can also right-click any text you have selected and choose Font to make even more details edits.
Please note that the basic formatting of comments in word is determined by Word Styles such as the the ones below:
- Comment Reference: This style controls the formatting of any comment references within the boy main body of your text.
- Comment Text: This style controls the formatting of the text used to print your comments. This only has importance when you choose to print a list of markup.
- Balloon Text: This style controls the formatting of the comments when they appear in balloons, regardless of whether they are displayed or printed.
If you choose to modify these styles, the formatting of your comments will be changed accordingly!
