About Comments

Comments provide a means for documenting instructions, entering notes, reminders or other important information directly onto the steps of a task. Comments are ignored by AutoMate during runtime. For debugging convenience, the Comments tab located in the Task Builder's Debug pane will show all comments and their associated step number. The default color for added comments is green, however, this can be changed by navigating to the Tools -> Editor Options -> Colors.

To add a comment:

  1. Highlight the task step in which to place the comment.

  2. Click the Comment button from the toolbar or select Add Comment... from the Insert menu. A Comment dialog box will appear as shown below.

  1. Enter the desired notes in the Comment Text field.

  2. To automatically add the comment to the bottom of the task, enable the Add to bottom of task parameter. Otherwise, the comment will be added directly above the highlighted step.

  3. Click Ok.

NOTE: Comments can be added from the Debug pane as well by clicking the Comments tab and selecting Add... from the right-click menu.
