Pages, Numbers, and Keynote aren’t limited to the content of a document. If we want to make a suggestion, explain a change or make a contribution the best way to do it is through the comments. A very versatile and easy to use system, let’s see how to do it on our Mac.
Comments, suggestions, modifications, notes, reminders, etc.
On Mac, comments work exactly the same in Pages, Numbers, or Keynote. The steps, therefore, always will start with a selection of a text
To see the comments of the document, we have to look for some indicators. These, however, can be hidden from the menu. Display > comments > Show / hide comments, so it is important that we keep this option in mind. In Pages, the line containing a comment will be marked with a colored box on the left side and the commented word (s) will be underlined. In numbers, we will see a small triangle in the upper right part of the cell. In Keynote, a small indicator will also mark the presence of an annotation.
If we want to see all comments on the document in summary form, just touch Show comments panel On the menu Display or that we press Shift (⇧) + Command (⌘) + T.
After seeing the comment, let’s see how to respond to it. It’s very simple, once we select a comment we touch the button Reply to add an answer. This way, we can refine the changes and save the changes we deem appropriate. Finally, comment that the button To get rid of allows, as its name suggests, to remove a certain comment.
Whether it’s a document that we’re working on with more than one person or where we want to leave annotations for ourselves, Pages, Numbers, and Keynote’s commenting system is a great resource. A clean and efficient way to annotate documents.
