Comments are used to clarify posts or ask for more information.
They also support a very small sample of Markdown, to allow for the addition of links, bold, italics, and code font.

I would like to propose that the comment text field editor be in monospaced font, the same as the asking and answering text field, with the exception that a toolbar is not provided.

This will greatly help with organizing our comments, because editing comments in the default font may make users think that Markdown isn't accepted in comments, when really it is.

  • No, I mean that while creating your comment, the comment editor is in a code font.

  • You can actually change that locally, although I don't know how to do it off the top of my head.

  • You just need to get the following into your CSS (for example using GM_addStyle() in Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey): .comment-form>form textarea {font-family: monospace;}
