I'm using VBA code in Word 2010/2016 to add a comment to the selection range in Word. Works fine, but it opens the Comments pane at the bottom of the screen and positions my insertion point down in that pane, which I don't want. I just want my insertion point to be inside the newly added comment bubble on the right margin, the same as when I manually add a comment.
I tried newcomment.range.select or newcomment.edit, but both still put me down in the bottom pane.
So I need to understand how to prevent the Comment pane from showing altogether, or a way to close it once it does.
Appreciate any help.
