"Insert comment" in previous versions either created comment in cell, or entered edit mode for existing comment. Now this is no longer the case - "Insert comment" only inserts new one, and to edit existing comment, I have to use "Edit comment" from mouse-context menu.
The problem is that "Edit comment" is not available anywhere as keyboard shortcut, and having to use different thing for inserting new comment, or editing existing one is problematic.
But you can create your own keyboard shortcut.
Tools - Customize - Keyboard - Functions category: Insert. Select "Edit comment", select some shortcut in the top list and click Modify to associate Edit comment with it.
Is this enough for you?
Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if it's not enough. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if you think it's ok.
There is no "Edit comment" in there. Functions are ... "Define Name", and immediately after: "Floating Frame". Nothing starting with E.
Also, "But you can create your own keyboard shortcut." - besides the point that I can't, why did we lose the ability to have *single* keyboard combination/functionality that lets me insert comment or edit existing one?
Whoops, sorry, I was looking at 5.1 for some reason.
You are right that it can't be defined in 5.0, strange.
For your question in comment 3, we have to ask UX.

Indeed. For me the removal of this ability is a bug or a design error, because you can't create a second comment if there is already one. So if a comment exists, the only actions you can take is edit or remove the comment. As it is not always obvious that a comment has already been defined, it is a good idea to have the same shortcut to create and edit a comment.
Setting status to NEW even if the possibility to create a shortcut for the edit comment exists in version 5.1. I think the bug should be fixed for the 5.0 branch. It is an accessibility problem too because it is not possible to edit a comment without the mouse.
In the case of 5.1 and next, a shortcut for the edit comment command should be defined by default. For example ctrl+shift+C but it would be better if we had the same shortcut to edit and create a comment.
The mnemonics to create and edit a comment are the same: right click + M (shift+F10+M).

The same shortcut should work for both inserting and editing comments, as it used to in 4.4 and below, and as it does in writer, so users dont have to learn a new shortcut.
This bug has been in ASSIGNED status for more than 3 months without any
activity. Resetting it to NEW.
Please assigned it back to yourself if you're still working on this.
