Great news: editing comments no longer loses paragraph formatting!

Great news: you can again edit your comments in the portal here, without losing such paragraph formatting! This long-standing problem has recently been fixed.

Try editing your own comments in any post and you will see. I’m pointing it out here for folks who may not even think to try otherwise!

For more on the problem, if you didn’t notice it, see a post I had done on it here some months back, identifying and explaining the problem, and with comments below it which showed what was happening:

Thanks to Rahul and any others involved at Adobe for getting this resolved finally. I know of people who were not bothering to improve their comments (even if they saw a mistake) because of this risk that all paragraph formatting would be lost.

Clearly it was a problem for only longer comments, but as those often were sharing lots of into, if was all the more important for them to be accurate.

Aaron, that’s odd, but a different problem  I’ve never seen an edit fail to save  Have you confirmed this different browsers and machines? I’ve not heard anyone indicating that problem.

Hi Charlie,

Ah! It’s Firefox-specific. Works fine w/ Edge and Chrome.

I use all 3 randomly, but just happened to have FF open when commenting. No worries, I’ll use the others when commenting  (an emoji was supposed to appear right here – but emoji doesn’t save – even in Edge/Chrome)

Thanks!,
-Aaron

Good to hear the conclusion. Worth reporting to Adobe  though. Perhaps it could be fixed.
