Edit function, new experience

Today when I went back into a comment to correct a sentence using the edit feature the comment window contained all of my comments throughout that thread at one time in detail.

Is there a reason or purpose for having every post listed while editing just one comment out of several within the same thread?

  1. That is not intended behavior. Could you please link to the offending topic? And has this happened for you in any other thread(s) before or since?

      Offending topic? This happens when I'm correcting my own comment by using the edit button attached to my comment box. The box opens, I can read my original comment which I'm correcting but I'm also able to read the list of comments I made earlier throughout the entire thread. This has happened twice before but haven't mentioned it formally until today.

        My apologies, I believe I'm missing something. The only edit button I can recall is on Chowhound- are you talking about editing posts on Story pages and the like?

        1. re: Engineering

          No, my apologies for the confusion. The issue is with Chowhound threads and the edit tab under each Chowhound post.

            That being the case, can you link me to the Chowhound thread(s) where you encountered the issue?

              Today the edit as described happened here:

                Strange. I'm not able to reproduce anything as of yet, and I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary with those particular threads, but I'll keep an eye out. If you could take a screenshot when next this happens, that may also be useful.

                1. re: Engineering

                  You can screen shot the contents of a comment window while in edit mode?

                  1. re: HillJ

                    You should be able to, unless you're using a specialized tool for taking screen shots.

                    The traditional route (eg using the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard) is actually very flexible. No matter what you're currently doing, pressing that key copies an image of everything on your screen, which you can then paste in Paint or other image programs. Alternatively, holding the Alt key when you hit Print Screen should copy only the contents of the current window (for example, your web browser).

                      Thanks! When/if this issue happens again when I'm trying to correct a comment, I'll give this a shot.
