I recently changed from a PC to a Mac, and am very happy with the choice I've made. I've been using NeoOffice and am generally satisfied with it, only I can't for the life of me figure out how to insert comments in a .doc/.odt document. Every time I want to do it I have to boot up Parallels and work on Windows.

Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Not sure if it helps... Nov 20, 2009

Enter a comment for the recorded change.

To access this command...
Choose Edit - Changes - Comment
Choose Edit - Changes - Accept or Reject - List tab. Click an entry in the list and open the context menu. Choose Edit Comment

You can attach a comment when the cursor is in a changed text passage , or in the Accept or Reject Changes dialog.

That was from the Neo Office help. The feature is not as good as in Word though.

Comments? Nov 20, 2009

Hi Fiona,
I insert notes/comments in Writer by selecting Insert > Note and that's it. Is this what you are looking for?
