Printing a Discussion

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated December 12, 2020)

Periodically you may want to print the discussion comments related to a Word 2000 document. While it seems odd to print when the whole idea of discussions is to enable on-line interaction, there may be some off-site person who should see some comments. (Perhaps the original author.) To print discussions, follow these steps:

  1. Open the document whose discussions you want to print.
  2. Click on the Discussions tool on the Discussions toolbar. Word displays a menu of actions you can take.
  3. Choose Print Discussions. Word displays the Print dialog box.
  4. Modify the printing options, as desired.
  5. Click on OK.

Word prints the discussion threads on the printer you specified in step 4. You should note that Word prints all discussion threads, so it is possible for the print job to be quite long if there are a lot of comments.
