How do I view comments in Microsoft Word 2011 for OSX? I can turn on the review pane, but that shows me every edit I've done to this document and it's impossible to find the comments. I just want a quick view of all the comments in the document.


Here's your solution. From the Review tab, under Tracking, select the Show Markup drop down and uncheck everything but comments.

    Thank you, you're right. For long documents it appears that it takes a few seconds for the review pane to upate after making changes in the drop down menu. I tried your suggestion and when it didn't seem to do anything I changed it back right away. Waiting a few more seconds allowed the review pane to update and show me what i was looking for – emmby Jun 24 '12 at 3:36
  • It might not take as long if it was the default view for review. Unfortunately, I can't test that since they didn't expose that feature under Preferences. – ephsmith Jun 24 '12 at 3:49
