editing assignment comments

(1)
This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas
 

I would like to be able to edit comments that I make in the speed grader on student assignments.  Often I find myself wanting to correct a type, or amending a phrase.  The only possible way to do it now is to make a new comments.  I keep looking for an editing feature similar to the way we can modify announcements.

It would save so much time rather than deleting the existing comment and doing a completely new comment!

This is marked as solved and deployed, but i cant find how to edit the comments in the right sidebar of the speedgrader. Can anybody tell me how this works?

The Edit function for assignment comments is part of the New Gradebook, and is described in the Edit Comment section of https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-16552-4152813640

As far as I can, it's possible to edit a comment in the "New Gradebook" view but it's still not possilbe in Speed Grader.

This feature is not quite up to par. In addition to comments above, we at UBC have observed that when editing the comment through the gradebook for a group assignment, it only edits it for one group member at a time.

Note on this from one of my faculty:

Here's a quick unsolicited suggestion for Canvas: it would be nice if there were an edit function on comments in SpeedGrader.  It's not a big deal; if I make a mistake after submitting, I just copy the comment, delete the original, past the text back into the comment and edit it, but it would be a click or two easier if I could just edit the comment.

The work around of having to go to the gradebook to edit the comments adds even more clicks than copy/delete/paste and edit/resubmit
