Cut, copy, and move comments

Post by JulieP » Tue Aug 21, 2018 8:58 pm

We use the comment bubbles a lot in our reviews. It would be great if we had the capability to cut, copy, paste, and move comment bubbles around in a file.

Hi Julie,

If you cut, copy or paste the text over which the comment is placed, the comment should go along with it.
Other than that, indeed you cannot copy only the comment callout/bubble and paste it in another location. I will add an improvement request for this in our issues list. How would you see this work if implemented? Right click a bubble and choose "Copy" and then select some text in another place, right click and choose "Paste"?

Regards,
Radu

Hi Radu,

I just realized that I never replied to you last year! Yes, having the option to Copy a comment bubble as you described would be great.
