I deleted the text my MSWord comment refers to. Now there is only a vertical bar, at the start of one of my sentences, that is connected to the comment with a dotted line.

What is the easiest way to change the 'begin' and 'end' position of the MSWord text that is referred to by a particular comment?

So that a sentence that already appears in my Word doc, now obtains the 'comment highlighting' to show it is connected to this particular comment.

Thanks

The only way I know to do this is to drag text into or out of the commented region.  Yes, it's clumsy, but it's Microsoft.

AFAIK, you're stuck with copying the comment text, deleting the comment, and recreating it.

Another less-than-ideal way is to copy the text of the comment, delete the comment, select new area of text, insert a comment, and paste into it the previous text.
