FAQ / Increasing the height of the toolbar to show all comments at once

The height of the toolbar is based on the height of the active Word window.

If you have two monitors and they are setup to display one on top of each other, you can make the toolbar extend over both monitors so you can see all comments at once in the following way:

  1. extend your Word document window over both monitors
  2. close the toolbar and then reopen is by pressing ALT F8

You should also remember that there are other ways to select comment names and insert the comment into the margin e.g. once you click in the list of comments you can type the first few letters of a comment to highlight that comment then press the Enter key to insert it into the margin
