Q&A: How to edit Modern Comments

Q:The edit comment button has disappeared!

A:Look in the meatball menu.

Word has moved the option into that menu along with the Resolve and Delete options so that an Edit “button” no longer pops up when you click on a comment.

This context menu pops up when you click on the “meatball menu” at the top right of any Modern Comment.

What we want is to be able to comment in footnotes, or paste a table in a comment… but at least we’re getting confusing changes that don’t change the function!


Remember that you have to “post”/Save a comment after editing/revising it.
