Editing comments

At any time, you can edit a comment’s text by pressing the button in the comment object’s header bar.

Alternatively, you can slow double-click (two clicks with a 1-second pause in between) on the comment text to enter edit mode.


You can use common wiki formatting when writing your comments.


All of the formatting symbols below must be surrounded either by whitespace or brackets. For example, “Text_italics_” won’t work, but “Text _italics_” or “Text[_italics_]” will.
