Description Hiunn-hué 2015-11-20 18:36:18 UTC
Currently the comment box seems to be a little bit crowded.

I wonder if we can ... 
  [1] widen the box;
  [2] add some space on side of the box;
  [3] add some space between box border and comment content (padding) 

so it would look more comfortable.

Some examples from Internet:

[1] I have no opinion yet
[2] is for me a matter of taste
[3] I would agree, this would be good

comment box comparison

an advantage for wider box:
for those who need to write a lot of comments (eg. a teacher correct student's papers), a wider comment box / comment zone would be better.

Just adding my vote, I could also use a control on the width of comment. I have a wide screen and collaborate on documents with partner. I make me sad to see all the empty space on each side of my document. I can zoom the main window, it seems like I should be able to drag the width of the comment bar at the top to increase the width of the comment window. It could be adjusting the ratio of text window to comment window, that way zoom would still work.
