When you collaborate on a document with multiple people, comments leave an important part of the process. You can print the document along with comments, but what if you want to print only the comments? You can do it.
Why do you just want to print the comments on a document? There are several reasons. Maybe you just want a copy of the comments you can keep for your records. Or maybe you want to sit down with partners as a group and look at the document and the comments separately. After all, a printed page full of edits and comments can be a bit overwhelming. Whatever your reason, Word makes it easy to do.
Print only comments
First open the document containing the comments you want to print. On the "Review" tab, click the "Show selection" button.
At the top of the drop-down menu you will see "Comments". If there is a check mark next to it, nothing needs to be done here. If you do not, continue and select it.
It is also worth mentioning that you have the opportunity, instead of printing all comments, to print only the reviewer's specific comments. To do this, select "Specific People" from the menu and select the specific reviewer whose comments you want to keep from the list displayed. Otherwise, keep "All reviewers" selected.
Then select the "File" tab.
Several different options are displayed along with a preview of the document.
On the document menu shown in the "Document Info" section, select the "List of Markup" option. Also make sure the "Print selection" option is highlighted at the bottom.
Then click on "Print". "
You will now get a printed version of only the document's comments.
