Document Comments

Mike McBride

Document comments are included in KWord to allow you to have your documents read by another person. That person can make comments about the text and the comment will appear right next to the text. Adding a comment to a document

To add a comment to a document, select the text you want the comment to apply to.

Select Insert->Comment... from the menubar. This will bring up a small dialog box.

Type the text of your comment in the dialog box provided. If you click on the Add Author Name, the text will be signed, dated and the current time will be added.
