You may want to look at this help page in a full size window to see the screen shots if you aren't already. Use [new window] at the top.

6. A comment about the (version of the) document you are looking at. The comment is marked on the page with a proof mark (often an asterisk or square brackets) and the one you are looking at is highlighted with a large flashing gold arrow. Click a proof mark to see the associated comment There are various buttons and menu entries along the top of the comment which let you change the comment and how comments are viewed, in particular, next and last comment buttons.
7. Page numbers ranged down the right side of the screen (when there is more than one page). Click one to jump to that page.
8. A picture of the page of the file for the version of the document you are looking at. Proof marks for comments are superimposed. The 'dog ear' in the top left lets you make or view general (position-unrelated) comments.
