How to programmatically set Show Comments? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I can't find the right method to activate Show Comments on the Review Tab. It isn't recordable either. Word 2013.

    Thanks,

    Peeter

  • Thank you,

    at the same moment I received your answer I just found out how to accomplish what I want :-).

    "ActiveWindow.View.ShowComments = True" does show that you have comments in the document, but it doesn't necessarily show the comments themselves.

    That is dependent of another setting: "ActiveWindow.View.RevisionsFilter.Markup = wdRevisionsMarkupAll" which make the comments visible on the side.

    thank you all for your attention,
    Peeter

  • You can use

    ActiveWindow.View.ShowComments = True

    to show comments, and

    ActiveWindow.View.ShowComments = False

    to hide them.
