Win10/Word 2016:

I have a Word doc (regarding my novel) which my Beta reader marked with comments. I am now responding to them. On one page, the comments are "contracted" e.g. I have to click on the comment to see the whole thing.

This problem may have started after I accepted all her tracked changes. Example:

Contracted comments
When i expand one comment, it looks fine, but when I expand the next one, the first comment contracts.

How can I fix so that all comments display in full?

Thanks,
Steve

Your only option is to get fewer comments on the page. You could possibly increase line spacing to achieve that outcome.

@DrTribos,

Bingo! As an expiriment, I deleted one comment, and the others expanded. I also tried increasing line spacing....I had to set to double and that seemed to help.

Bottom line you've provdied a logical reason, and workarounds I can use if so inclined. Thank you for your good help!
