simple Question, I find it easier to do a //FIXME //TODO in a document than Click Review -> New Comment -> Type the comment then go back to the document. Is there a way I can do this without clicking anything ?

Word: File → Options → Customize Ribbon → press "Customize..." button next to "Keyboard shortcuts".

Here you can add keyboard shortcut for pretty much anything. In my case (Slovenian version) there was already a shortcut for adding a comment (Ctrl+Alt+A). In English version of Word 2007 the shortcut is Ctrl+Alt+M.

This is for Word 2007, in older versions it's similar, although you will have to find the option under a different group (Insert if I remember correctly).

To get back to the document when you finish writing the comment just press ESC.

CTRL+ALT+M works for Microsoft Word 2010 as well. – mwalter May 8 '14 at 12:21

In Word 2007, Alt+R -> C will add a comment. Haven't found a way to avoid a click to get back to the original document.

I agree, I tried Ctrl + sh + tab, ctrl + everything. it'll be nice if there were features like //comment or //reword or //hide_from_all_but_me – dassouki Sep 16 '09 at 13:21
You can get back from the comment to the original document with "ESC". – user369743 Sep 18 '14 at 10:24
