  • 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 it worked pretty well.

    • 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. :-)
