Description Jeff Fortin Tam 2021-03-21 18:16:27 UTC
Everytime I create a comment in a spreadsheet, I want to be able to set its size and position so that the text flows neatly and that it doesn't obscure the view of the data when shown. However, Calc makes this process very tedious, because it doesn't let me do that when initially creating the comment; the comment's border is not selectable to move or reposition it, I need to:

1. Press Esc (or click outside the comment) for it to create & save the comment
2. Right-click the cell
3. "Show comment"
4. Click the comment's edge/border
5. Finally be able to reposition and resize it!

This is taking me 5 steps instead of what should be 1 step: while creating (or editing) a comment, just let me move/resize it anytime, without even having to click its border to enter "positioning/resizing mode". Just let me do it directly anytime, please.

Yes. But I'd call this a duplicate of a high importance but long standing bug.
