   3.   Do one of the following:

  • To find a specific reviewer's comment, select that reviewer's name from the Enter Reviewer's Name drop-down list. The names of all reviewers who have added comments to the document appear on this list.
  • To find a specific comment, enter the number of that comment (without the reviewer's initials) in the Enter Reviewer's Name text box. Note that when you enter a number, the Next button in the Go To dialog box is replaced by a Go To button.
  • To find a comment that is positioned relative to your current location, enter a number preceded by a plus or a minus sign. For example, to find the third comment following your current position, enter +3 in the text box.

   4.   If you specified a comment number or a relative position, click the Go To button. If you specified a reviewer, click the Next or Previous button to jump to the next or the previous comment for that reviewer.

The insertion point jumps to the specified comment mark in your document window.

To display changes and comments for a specific reviewer, you can:

On the Review tab, in the Tracking group, use the Display for Review list. Final Showing Markup is the default when you open any document.
