I am editing a Hindi document in MS Word. I am required to give comments for each and every edit made by me. While there is no difficulty in doing so for the running matter, I am experiencing some sort of problems while trying to write comments in connection with text appearing in small text boxes. When I try to record comments in this case, the 'comments' command gets disabled and I don't find any way to do the needful. Interestingly, I am able to write comments for the text appearing in large text boxes but I can't do so in respect of matter appearing in small text boxes.

Could someone enlighten and guide me in solving this riddle?

Thanks in anticipation.

Not possible. Aug 20, 2004

You cannot insert comment for text in text box.. as far as I know. Try doing something similar in English.. it doesn\'t take it. There are a lot of limitations when it comes to Ms Word text boxes.. text in these text boxes doesn\'t even get counted in word count..

So, in my humble opinion,... no comments can be inserted for text in text boxes.

But I could be wrong.

Thanks for informing me in this respect. I just suspected it was happening to me only and there might be some other procedure/command to pass comments for matter in text boxes.
