This enhancement allows the user to select a block of cells and insert a comment for the selection.
I guess this enhancement request is pretty much analogous to Writer's newly acquired text selection comments (as opposed to single character position comments).
The analogous bug in Writer is bug #38244.
Thanks for the report!
Can you pls describe the use case for this?
Well, say perhaps you want to comment a whole table, then you'd use the feature. Or perhaps you were writing a scientific document, and you wanted to point out an important fact about some data in a data table, then you'd select the cells and comment. Or maybe you are organizing an enterprise inventory, and there is some explanation to do about a group of items, then you'd use it again. I think there are many use cases, don't you as well?

> you'd use it again. I think there are many use cases, don't you as well?
Yes, I can think of those too.
But in these situations I would be more tempted to set a comment at the top of a table / one cell, and write in it that is applies to more cells.
I'm afraid that it becomes looking messy with comments linked over such ranges.
Maybe only me.. ?
But thanks for your reply!
