Comment Tool should offer default preference option

Can we set our own Comment tool default preferences? - For me I want to set the text alignment to be "Center" by default, currently it's always "TopCenter" when I open it.

I agree, it would be nice to let a user define things like this. It's unfortunately in the not planned status, but this idea is the general version of your idea:

Hi All!


Thank you for the feedback, while this idea does have connections to the one linked by Patrick, the request is different enough that I wouldn't consider it a duplicate. However I appreciate the link to the other idea as any decision on this idea may be influenced by or directly influence the other.


For any new users to the idea board, please be sure to like any ideas that would help you as that helps our product team get a clear view into what would be most beneficial to our users.

I would love that function.  I always have to change the comment box to a the desired background color and the alignment to TopLeft for documentation.

I would like this feature as well. It would be very time saving.

Yes please

Yes agree. It would be more efficient to be able to change the default alignment and formatting of the "Comment" tool. 


It would greatly speed up the time required to markdown our workflow.
