Hi all!

Found the script "VBA" which is a little tweaked to fit your needs:

Sub Special_note()
Dim myComm As Comment
  If Not ActiveCell.Comment Is Nothing Then
    If MsgBox("The cell already contains a note, delete?", 4) - 7 Then
    Else: Exit Sub
    End If
  End If

  Set myComm = ActiveCell.AddComment
  With myComm.Shape 'exhibiting the required format
    .Height = 110
    .Width = 200
    .AutoShapeType = 1             'form
    .Fill.ForeColor.SchemeColor = 13 'fill
    .Line.ForeColor.RGB = RGB(255, 0, 0) 'line color
    .DrawingObject.Font.Name = "Consolas" 'font
    .DrawingObject.Font.FontStyle = "standard"
    .DrawingObject.Font.Size = 9    'font size
  End With
  'emulate the choice of " Change note"
  SendKeys "%": SendKeys "а": SendKeys "и": SendKeys "и": SendKeys "~": SendKeys "{BS}": SendKeys "{BS}"
End Sub

It works great!
But I wanted to add an item to the context Menu. File "PERSONAL.XLSB" in the folder XLSTART\ created scripts are saved and work in all "Excel" documents. But nothing is added to the "Context Menu". For this case used this script:
Sub SHD_CommAdd()
Dim MyPoint As CommandBarControl
  Set MyPoint = Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls.Add
  MyPoint.Caption = "Special note"
  MyPoint.OnAction = "PERSONAL.XLSB!AddComm"
  MyPoint.Move , 10
End Sub

I get a window with this ERROR:
Unable to execute macro "PERSONAL.XLSB'AddComm" This macro may not be present in the current workbook, or all macros may be disabled.
In General, googled and found this "To add macro from the context menu, you need to keep THIS BOOK".
Got any vacine? I feel uncomfortable if only one document will be added to the item, it is convenient when working in all documents.

To cancel there is a script (by the way it works):
Sub KMRangeClear()
End Sub

1. If you have created a note the function to return "CTRL+Z" doesn't work (with the usual note is working). How to return to work?
2. If several items (called through RightClickMouseButton) are added to the context menu. How to remove selectively (I repeat that this thing doesn't work in all the docks, only one)? For example:
Special note_1
Special note_2
Special note_3
I want to remove only "Special note_1" how to implement in a macro?

It looks like you want to assign your macro called "Special_note" to your newly added control. If so, try...

MyPoint.OnAction = "PERSONAL.XLSB!Special_note"
To delete it, try...

Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls("Special note").Delete
Hope this helps!
