Convert "Comment" To "Tool Container" or Vice Versa

On Right Clicking to "Comment" we should be able to convert it to "Tool Container" or "Tool Container" to "Comment". Also, it should map all the common configurations or similar. The mapping can be as such:


This example is from Comment to Tool Container,


Text --> Caption upto length 200 or so,..

Shape --> NA

Font --> NA

Text Color --> Text Color

Background Color --> Fill Color and Border Color

Text Alignment --> NA

Background Image --> NA


Transparency and Margin to Default

I like this idea - I think there are lots of improvements that can be made to 'documentation' features!

We have some workflows that we collaborate on.

Some users add comment boxes, then align a tool over it.

This should really be a container.

Would be great if we can have this feature when auditing shared workflows.
