    adding comments to the CSS section of either the regular or advanced designer, any time more than one comment is added sequentially, all but the first

    Asked by stormingrobots on February 02, 2017 at 10:31 AM

    multiple lines of comment kept disappeared:



    I have put in comment in the css such as :

    /*--roboclub - 62------*/

    /*--sibling -   153-----*/

    /*--carpooling - 159-----*/

    /*-- referral : 160----*/


    but it kept disappearing with the top single line remained.  Please advise.

    I tested adding comments on my end and they were retained in the code:

    I saved the changes, reloaded the designer, the code was still there.

    Is this still being stripped on your end?  Let us know and we will have another look.

    Yea.. still happens

    Did you try contiguous lines of them, instead one followed by actual tags description?

    like this :

    /*  test 1 */

    /* test 2 */

    /*  test 1 */

    /* test 2 */

    #label_5 {

    ... such and such..



    When I do it a single line followed by tags, it works. However, anything more than one comment line, it fails and only retains the first line. 

    Also,  the lines disappeared only after you exit the designer and comes back.

    I see what you mean.  When multiple comments are added in one right after another, only the first comment is retained and the rest are removed:

    I will forward this to our developers to have a look.  In the mean time, single comments on multiple lines are working.  That can be used until multiple different comments sequentially is working again.
