How to view all comments in Word in one place

You’re working on a Microsoft Word Document and can’t figure out how to see all of the comments at the same time.

This article will show you how to view all of the comments in your Word doc at the click of a button.

How to show all comment lines in your Word Document

Follow these 4 easy steps to view all comments:

  1. Open the Word document.
  2. In the toolbar, click Review.
  3. Find and click Tracking.
  4. Tick All Markups.

Only want to see the comments not all changes?

If your Microsoft Word Document is full of tracked changes, comments and formatting updates and you want to clear the air for comments only here’s how you do it:

  1. Open the Word document.
  2. In the toolbar, click Review.
  3. Find and click Tracking.
  4. Click Mark-up Options.
  5. Clear everything except Comments.

Need a better way to collaborate on Microsoft Word Documents?

You’re working on a word document with your team, each of you adding comments and tracking changes along the way. Then you realise two people have been working on the same document at once and you no longer have all of the changes in the one file.

You start googling ‘How to merge Word documents with comments?’ and think there has to be a better way!

Enter purpose-built tools, such as Simul Docs, designed to help you seamlessly collaborate on Microsoft Word documents with your team.

Simul Docs is an easy to use tool that works to keep track of a Word document as your team make edits. Automatically saving new versions each time the document is opened and edited, tracking all changes (even if you forget to turn track changes on).

Simul also recognises when two people are editing a document at the same time, saving each person’s changes in a separate ‘branch’ so no one’s work is overridden.

You can then ‘merge’ these two branches with the click of a button. Bringing both author’s changes back into the same document, allowing you to easily identify the differences. It’s that easy!
