That is very easy to do.

1) Select the block of text where you want to add the comment sign.

2) Press Command-F to open the Find window

3) Chech the box for "Regular Expressions"
   Make sure that you have selected Origin: "Top" and Scope: "Selection"

   Type "$" (without quotes) in the search box
   Type "%" (without quotes) in the replace box
   Press Replace All
