    Position comment box where i want it to be

    Comment boxes always seem to pop up to the top right of the cell. Sometimes, I would like them to be elsewhere.

    However, when I grab the box and move it to my desired postion, it always goes back to where it started.

    How can I reposition a Comments Box and get it to stay put?

    Hi,

    You can't alter where a comment appears when you hover over a cell. Moving the comment only affects where it appears when you have it permanently visible.

    Ok, thanks for that. If that truly is the case then there is an improvement opportunity there for Microsoft.

    There are a great many such opportunities for Microsoft! If you wish to suggest it to them- since they are unlikely to do anything otherwise- you might post it on UserVoice and hope it garners enough support.
