I use the Track Changes feature of Word extensively as I work with several other people on the same document.

I always need to approve the comments when going over the changes, this gets very tedious in the long run. I approved each comment several times now, yet I always need to approve them again and again.

Is there any way how I can ignore comments when tracking/approving changes?

I only want to work with actual changes to the document text, not with the comments (which don't change anyway).


I am using MS Word 2010 under Windows 7

The comments is part of the word file .. so, there's no way .. –  matzone May 13 '13 at 7:22
@matzone: then how come that even if I do approve each comment, I need to approve the comments again when I open the file again? –  gojira May 13 '13 at 7:56
