Changing the Shape of a Cell Comment
Changing the Shape of a Cell Comment
Cell comments are useful for a variety of purposes. But sometimes you just get tired of looking at
the same old yellow rectangle. If you want your comment to get noticed, try changing the shape.
Figure 155-1 shows a normal cell comment, and the same comment after it gets spiffed up a bit.

To change the shape of a cell comment, you need to use a command that’s not normally
available when a comment is selected. You can add the command to your Quick Access toolbar:
1. Right-click the QAT and choose Customize Quick Access Toolbar.
The Customization section of the Excel Options dialog box appears.
2. From the Choose Commands From drop-down list, choose Drawing Tools➜Format Tab.
3. In the list on the left, select Change Shape and then click the Add button.
4. Click OK to close the Excel Options dialog box.
After you complete these steps, your Quick Access toolbar has a new Change Shape icon.
To change the shape of a comment, make sure that it’s visible. If the comment isn’t visible,
rightclick the cell and choose Show/Hide Comments. Then click the comment’s border to select it as a
shape (or, Ctrl+click the comment to select it as a shape). Click the Change Shape button on the
Quick Access toolbar and choose a new shape for the comment from the Shape gallery.
