Hello everyone

I'm editing an SDLXIFF file from a translator who was only too happy to leave me lots of comments. I have read all the comments and have acted on them as I see fit, but now I want to remove them to create the final, "clean" SDLXLIFF file. Is there a way to delete all comments in Trados 2011, except by manually opening them all individually and clicking the Delete button?

... in the comments window there are two cross symbols. One deletes the active comment, the other deletes all comments in the document.
