Automatically resize comment boxes to fit the contents in Excel

The size of the comment box is default in Excel. When entering or copying large content into the comment box, it will not display the whole content since the comment boxes is too small, and you have to resize the comment box manually in order to display all content. With the AutoFit Comment utility of Kutools for Excel, the comment boxes will be automatically resized to fit their contents accordingly in active sheet or all sheets of current workbook.
