Hi William,

I was wondering if there is a button or command to comment
commands in the Editor.

Highlight the code you want to comment (or uncomment), right click and
select “comment code” the select “comment block” to comment it,. or
“uncomment block” to do the opposite.

This works by prefixing each line highlighted with ‘–’ comment markers
to comment or removing same to uncomment. It won’t uncomment a
multi-line comment enclosed in ‘/’ and '/’ though.

Cheers,
Norm. [TeamT]

If it is just one, just make it a comment by putting two dashes up front

If it is multiple then highlight all the statements you want to become comments
and click on EDIT è COMMENT BLOCK

If you want to uncomment the HIGHLIGHT the statements and click on EDIT è
UNCOMMENT BLOCK

You can use standard windows methods to add those two as buttons to any button
line.

Yes, there are editor toolbar buttons you can add, or else highlight the text you want commented and ctrl-shift-c works (I can’t remember if that is the default hot-key, but it is the one I’ve been using for years).

I use Ctrl-B to comment and Shift-Ctrl-B to uncomment.

I’m guessing these are the defaults as I don’t recall setting them for a recent fresh install.

Hey, that works very nicely. J Thank you.

Not that it would make any sense to bold code, but my first thought was that
Ctrl-B would do just that.

The right-click context menu is wonderful. Check it out. All you have to do
is highlight the code you want commented/uncommented, right-click, then select
the comment section where you comment or uncomment the block.
