Dear colleagues,

I have the latest version of Office 2003, which has an improved comments function - of course, the older Office versions also had the comments function, but in 2003 this has been slightly modified, so that comments are somewhat clearer.

My problem: Now and again I write comments in Word and Powerpoint. I have found that these comments were not visible to colleagues with older versions of Office. As far as I can recall, this problem only occurred in Powerpoint and it's kind of annoying because it means that all the comments have been entered for nothing.

1. Is this problem known? and 2. Is there any way of getting around it?

Thanks in advance for any input.

All the best,

Sarah Downing

Be sure your colleagues are using Print view. Comments are not visible in Normal view.
Best regards

Slight correction to Andrzej: Feb 23, 2004

This should be "Layout view" AFAIR. Or maybe it was so in XP and previous versions, but has changed in 2003?

Kind regards
Jerzy

I don't think it's a problem of views Feb 23, 2004

I assume that both of you are referring to views in Word, because I can't find any of these view in Powerpoint (2003, German version), which is the program with which I am experiencing the problems.

I seriously think that it is a compatibility problem, because when I had Win 2K and a colleague sent me a Powerpoint document, I couldn't see the comments either.
