In Excel 2007, is there a way to "focus" on a comment? In an IDE, you would do this by pressing F2 for those familiar.

One example of the issue is with Freeze Panes. Say for example:

  • I have frozen the top row
  • That row has a comment in one of its cells
  • I scroll down a ways so that there is a break in the row numbering
  • I hover over the header cell: the comment appears but only the top half of it! If I try to mouse over it to see the rest, it disappears.

Enough playing around and I figured out most of it. Right click on the cell and choose "Show/hide comments." That will force it to stay even when the mouse is not over it. It still gets cut off if it is on a frozen pane, but it is at least readable.
