You can remove comments in Word by right-clicking, using the Review tab in the Ribbon or using the Inspector. The problem with comments is that they may be hidden if markup is not displayed. It’s a good idea to display markup and then remove comments.
You can change or fix the format of a number field in a Microsoft Word mail merge document using switches in field codes. Number formatting issues tend to occur when the source document for the mail merge is an Excel workbook or Access database.
You can create labels in Microsoft Word by running a mail merge. This is typically used to generate and print bulk mailing labels for names and addresses of clients or other contacts. You’ll need to create a main document for the labels in Word and then connect to a data set or list in an Excel worksheet.

You can change margins in Google Docs using the Page Setup dialog box or by using the Ruler. You have the option of changing the top, bottom left and right margins for your document. Note that margins can be different in each section of a document if you have inserted section breaks. By default, a Google Docs file contains one section.
You can apply subscript to text, numbers or special characters in Google Docs using the menu or a keyboard shortcut. If you apply subscript, the selected letter, number or symbol will be lowered slightly below the line of text and sized to a smaller size.
You can now add audio or music in Google Slides presentations. However, before you can add audio to a Google Slides presentation, you’ll first need to upload it to your Google Drive and then insert it. The audio is then linked to the audio file on Google Drive.
