Scripto lets you leave contextual comments on any document. They're good for feedback, notes, threads, alts, and perhaps most importantly: A channel for frivolous banter that isn't Zoom.
Leaving a comment
Highlight some text and click comment to create a new comment thread. When you hit Send, your comments will show up instantly on everyone else's screen, and so will theirs on yours. It looks like this:
Comments are tied to text blocks. If you make three comments within one text block, the comment indicator will appear at next to the first comment made.
💡Comments are also a handy way to collect alts.
Responding to a comment
Click on the comment icon to open the comment. Below the comment or comment thread, there's a field where you can type your reply, then hit Send.
Resolving a comment thread
Click Resolve to make a comment or entire comment thread disappear. Resolved comments won't appear on the script but you can always reference them in the comment history panel up in the tool bar. (You can un-resolve a comment from there too.)
Editing a comment
Open a comment and click the ⋮ button next to the comment you want to edit. Select Edit from the menu. Make your edits and hit Update.
👉 Note that you can only edit a comment if you wrote it. You cannot edit other people's comments.
Deleting a comment
Open a comment and click the ⋮ button next to the comment you want to edit. Select Delete from the menu.
👉 Note that you can only delete a comment if you wrote it. You cannot delete other people's comments.
Comment History Panel
The comment history panel is a unified place to see all the open comments or all the resolved comments on a script.
In the toolbar, you'll see a comment count. Click on it to open the comment history panel. You can look at all the open comments or switch views to see just the resolved comments.
From the resolved comment view, you can un-resolve a resolved comment. This will change its status back to open and put the comment thread back where it originally was on the script.
