    I grade a lot of papers for the online college courses I teach. The papers are to be written in APA formatting. When a student makes an error, I insert a comment that will help them improve, or that explains what is wrong. It has occurred to me that many of the comments I make are addressing the same issue, only with a different student. Therefore, it seems it would be really nice if I could have a set of ... or library of different comments that I could insert for the common problems, instead of retyping the same thing every time. For example, I would have a standard comment that deals with proper formatting of the header information. etc. ... In other words, when I click on the icon to insert a comment, I have the choice of writing a completely new comment (which is all I have now), OR choosing from a list of comments already written to address specific issues.

    Is there a way to do this in Word 2010?
    thanks,

    Word 2007 and Word 2010 use the nomenclature of Building Blocks and Quick Parts for collections of reusable text. (General info: Quick Parts - Word - Microsoft Office Online.) I actually don't know whether these can be used when composing a comment, or whether they can actually contain an entire comment. Worth exploring, I think.
