what's the shortcut in excel to show/hide cell comments?
Shift-F2 to edit them... otherwise i think you have to use the right click options.
This works as a toggle command.
A modification on Geoffrey van Wyk's VBS - toggles only comment of active cell
Sub Show_Hide_Comment() ' ' This macro toggles the display of selected cell's comment if one exists. ' It does not create one if there is none... for this press Ctl+F2 ' ' You may use macros menu to set keyboard shortcut ' If Not ActiveCell.Comment Is Nothing Then If ActiveCell.Comment.Visible Then ActiveCell.Comment.Visible = False Else ActiveCell.Comment.Visible = True End If End If End Sub
I'm running Excel 2013 and on the ribbon's REVIEW tab I have a "Show/Hide Comment" to toggle visibility of a single cell's comment.
Shortcut: Alt, R, H
In Excel 2007, there is no such keyboard shortcut according to the Excel Help File. You will have to write a macro for that.
Sub Show_Hide_Comments() ' ' This macro toggles the display of all comments that have been inserted for cells in a worksheet. ' ' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+S ' If Application.DisplayCommentIndicator = xlCommentAndIndicator Then Application.DisplayCommentIndicator = xlCommentIndicatorOnly Else Application.DisplayCommentIndicator = xlCommentAndIndicator End If End Sub
You can paste the above code into a module in your Personal Workbook and set the shortcut in the Macros dialog. Let me know if you do not know how to do that.
