okay so first of all im going to open up the comments bar and the first option i have is to add a sticky note so if i just click somewhere inside the document i can then type in a note and post it then hover over the note and see what you wrote and i can also click on the note and move it to a different place if i want to then another way of adding in a note is to right click and select add sticky note and then you dont actually have to post the note you can just click off of it and it will still be there then if you dont have the comments bar open and you add a sticky note it will pop up looking like this then another way of adding a note is to use the keyboard shortcut ctrl 6 and you will also end up with a note like that then if i right click and select properties i can change the way the note looks and then if i want to make that change permanent i need to tick the make properties default box here then the next option i have is to highlight the text so i can just click and drag
