Description TorrAB 2019-05-18 19:03:11 UTC
Created attachment 151506 [details]
file with commented cell

0: Open comment.ods; double-click the comment (or hit ~C, altShiftC), delete 'Hello', hit Esc. Empty comment box remains.
	1: Right-click cell A1: there is no 'Delete comment' option. How to remove the empty box?
	2: Double-click the box, enter a new comment, 'abc'; right-click cell A1: there is still no 'Delete comment' option! Close the file and reopen it: no more comment! And 'abc' is lost.
	If you save the file at the end of step_0, it reopens without the comment.
	Conclusion: if comment becomes nil, it is deleted (naturally), but its window should disappear immediately, so that user cannot make another one (step_2) that will not even be saved.
