Comment on last line

There is an annoying issue when commenting the last word in a text.
By clicking on "Enter" to start a new line, the comment will follow and point to the newly created line.

See attached screenshoots to understand.

A nice feature, solving partially this problem, would be to make it possible to move comments.

There is no way to add text at the end of the document without moving the comment. The only way to do that is to delete the comment, press Enter and write the comment again.

Comment on last line

I am experiencing this or similar problem
1) Creating a document by copying paragraphs from a text document
2) On the last line of document, I selected text and added a comment.
3) Comment was selected, Writer positioned the comment at the bottom (see above)
4) I needed to descend below the comment to add more text.    
5) Comment would descend with every new line that was entered.

Save comment text contents, delete commment, add lines of new text at bottom and insert replacement comment with saved comment text

Please retest with LO 7.2 eventually. I expect it is fixed courtesy of bug 120290.

works for me in 7.2+
