  • One of the more tiresome aspects of working with the comment object is having to constantly adjust its width to match the entered text. At one point, I was watching Ben Bracken do some live patching, and he was using a keyboard shortcut to constantly fit the size of the comment to the typed-in text. I (and others in the room) all shouted out "What are you doing!"; it turns out that the "Fix Width" menu command (and command-J shortcut on Mac) does this in a hurry - and has subsequently saved hours of comment size fixing.
  • For designing UI's using comments for text, note that the current version of the comment object now support right- and center-justification (as well as the classic left-justification).
