Comment command


Recommended Posts

Using the comment command under Macro Control, I can apparently write as much text as I like (although the control does not display any scroll bar when there's too much text to fit in the unresizable window). But only the 1st 255 characters are displayed, the rest of the text being replaced by an ellipsis (...).

I'm not sure whether I really like this. Since I'm writing these comments for myself, or for the guidance of my users/audience, etc.,

surely it should be up to me to decide how much text I want to use - after all, I can write each new line of text as a new comment statement if I want.

 

Is this restriction really necessary?

I'd noticed that too. Like you, I would prefer to see no such restriction.
