I've been asked if there is a way to customize the default comment box in Word.  The user would like to remove the text Comment from every comment and would like to leave only the name with it being the same size as the rest of the text in the comment box.  Is this possible?

I don't thing you can, by default, remove the word "Comment" from every comment in Word 2010. This is not an issue in 2013, where the word "Comment" doesn't appear.

You can change the font of the name - see this article http://libroediting.com/2012/10/19/customising-comment-boxes-in-word/

I already have that article open so I'm glad to see someone else thinks it's a good resource too.  I don't think it is possible, maybe at some deeper level like in a .xml file or something like that, but it's good to get affirmation for when I present this to my boss.

As I say, if your boss wants an alternative, he can upgrade to Office 2013. The comment just has the person's name, and the actual comment (when editing; in print it has the old format).

Thank you for replying!  Yes unfortunately my boss will have to live with this version of the Comment bubbles until we are ready to upgrade to 2013.
