I have a Google Spreadsheet with several boxes with the little orange triangle indicating a comment associated with that cell. Unfortunately, I haven't made any comments, so cannot delete these boxes. How do I go about clearing these cells without deleting everything and starting over?
We've received reports of users seeing comment indicators on cells in which no comments exist, as well as comment indicators in the incorrect cell after a sheet is resorted, duplicated, or amended by copy/paste.
Our team is aware of the issue and working on a fix. As a workaround, if you notice out-of-place comment indicators, simply refresh the spreadsheet. All comment indicators should appear in the correct cells again.
Following these instructions, I tried simply hitting the refresh button and all of the phantom comments disappeared. I guess sometimes the easiest solution is the best one.
Generally speaking, you should be able to right-click one of the cells, choose
Insert comment, then click the delete link. After you confirm the comment(s) should be gone.
