Comment Balloon size and comment text visibility issue

In some word documents when I try to insert review comments, the balloon size goes very thin and the text typed cannot be viewed.

Tried changing the text size within the balloon.

Tried changing the style of the balloon.

These do NOT resolve the problem.

Copy+Pasting the entire document into a new word document is the only way to resolve this issue.

Is this an identified issues with MS Word 2010 as the occurance of this issue is not simply random.

Is there an option within MS Word 2010 to change the review comment balloon size? (not the text size within the balloon)

Answer

To modify the style used in the comment balloon's


1. Open the Styles Pane by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Shift-S
2. Click on the Manage Styles button in the bottom of that pane
3. In the Manage Styles dialog > Edit tab, set the sort order to Alphabetical and select the style called Balloon Text and click the Modify button
4. Change the size to something much larger eg 12 and click OK and OK to return to the document.

A user in another thread on this subject reported that it was the font size of the Balloon Text style that was causing the problem, so you might investigate that.


      

That makes sense. Usually you have to modify both Comment Text and Balloon Text to change the font for text in comment balloons.
