  • Editing comments loses focus on enter

    The editing functionality for comments should match editing actions. When you select an action, either by double clicking or by cursor up/down/enter, when you finish editing and hit enter, the action line remains highlighted and you can simply press down arrow/enter to immediately/quickly edit the next action. Then repeat this to quickly edit many actions without reaching for the mouse. When you use these techniques to edit comments, the comment immediately loses focus/highlight when you press enter which forces you to reach for the mouse, move to the next line, double click. It's very tedious when editing long series of comments.

  • Probably not exactly what you want but you can make multi-line comments by using shift-enter.

  • R0J0hound Actually that's not a bad work-around. Not sure why I didn't try doing [Shift][Enter]

    However, the Comment editing behavior described in the bug should still be corrected so it matches editing Actions and Events.

  • Fixed for next build: pressing enter to end editing a comment now leaves the comment selected, so you can press enter to edit it again or use arrow keys to continue to navigate from it.
