Ability to resize the comments tool widget

Service Studio
On our radar
This is a minor but sometimes useful feature.

The ability to resize the comments tool widget by dragging freely the corners instead of having to insert breaks on the text.

I was just going to suggest this myself when I found this. It seems extremely silly that this isn't possible.

Be able to resize a comment and customize it with a simple color and header text.

This way you can easily visualize the code that refers to that comment and group it.

Here's a really simple example:



This can almost be done but the flow arrows are still behind the comment, the text needs to be input using spaces, the resize is done using new lines and space which is cumbersome and all the comments use the same color making it dificult to differentiate.

On screen actions become very big that need to access to read and change OS components since:

  • Screen actions can not call other Screen Actions
  • Server actions can not manipulate OS UI components

Therefore the screen action logic can not be broken down into smaller actions.  Using notes is the only way to document sub screen action logic.

There's already an Idea for this, I'll merge this one with it. For visually grouping stuff, an idea I really like, there's already another Idea, here. Go over and like! :)

In order to make the actions more readable, I would like to be able to (re)size comments.


For example I would like to have a short comment; though the comment field needs to have the same width or height as all the components it belongs to. This way you can visually group logic and read the logic even faster.
