  • When I wrote my master thesis, oh so many moons ago, what we did to inject comments was to define, for each reviewer, the following two commands in the document header:

    \def\yanick#1{\fbox{\footnote {\ }}\ \footnotetext{ From Yanick: #1}}
    \def\hyanick#1 {}

    Then you could pepper the document with comments like so:

    Blah blah blah blah \yanick{ Oh, really? } blah blah blah

    And if you wanted to hide the comment, but keep it in the document, you just had to switch \yanick into \hyanick. Simple system, but

    • Wow. Yeah, that is quite simple. I will give it a shot. Thanks!

      • You're welcome. And if you discover a cleverer trick, please don't forget to share it back with us. :-)
