The Help file for Calc has a mistake in the instructions for Editing a Comment.
Help states, "To edit a shown comment, double-click the comment text. To edit a comment that is not shown permanently, right-click in the cell that contains the comment, and then choose Insert - Comment. To specify the formatting of the comment text, right-click the comment text in edit mode.
Choosing "Insert - Comment" and double clicking does not work.
The correct procedure to edit a Comment that is not shown permanently is to choose "Show - Comment" and then double left click the text.
This Help file bug needs to be corrected to read "Show - Comment" instead of "Insert - Comment"
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Right click a cell with a Comment.
2.Choose "Insert - Comment"
3.Double left click the text and it becomes highlighted (selected) not editable
Comment text becomes highlighted (selected)
Insert of cursor to permit editing.

tdf#95262 Mistake in Help instructions for editing Comments in Calc
This bug report was about a typo, not a gap (“lack of…”) in documentation, so it shouldn’t block bug 80430, which is specifically for areas in which documentation is missing.
Also, moving this to the Documentation component.
