I have a Google Docs document when there were a lot of comments. These comments have been resolved, however, I still need to see them in context.

You could re-open them, but I don't really want to do that, since it would incorrectly notify many people.

So how would you show resolved comments in context without re-opening them in Google Docs document?

Click on "Comments" at the top right corner. The resolved ones are listed there. Source: Link

To see the original context of a comment, click on that comment. This will only work if the original context still exists (wasn't deleted). If the original context was deleted, you can make a copy of an earlier version of the document, and view the comments there.

  • That does not show them in the original context. – jave.web Oct 17 '18 at 19:59
  • @jave.web it does show the original context if you click on the comment. If the original context was deleted, you can restore it. See edited answer above. – root Oct 18 '18 at 6:58

    The purpose is to globally show all the comments next to their contexts INSIDE THE DOCUMENT (as seen before they are marked as resolved). – jave.web Oct 20 '18 at 1:18

    It's now called "Open Comment History" and is a speech bubble icon on top right – MicroMachine Apr 16 at 0:11
