Is it possible to add comments in Modeler like in Layout?

Thank you!

might be some free plugin somewhere to add annotations to an object, but I donīt think it is available nativly.
You could also simply use surface editor and the comment bar, but that will only be true to a one surface object.

We WISH. It's pretty lame that we can't attach all sorts of metadata to objects, as far as I know.

Here's hackish options:

As P. said, you can make a SURFACE, and use the SURFACE comment field. Name the Surface so it's always the first one in the SEd list, e.g. "aaa_Comment".
A little more up-to-date, you can do the same thing in the Node Editor-- each node can have a comment.
You can NAME Surfaces so as to document
You can NAME Nodes so as to document
You can make a HIDDEN Layer, and use the Layer name as a comment field.
You can type out a comment as geometry, and hide the Layer.


These work-arounds are all lame and stupid. What we need is user-editable metadata, that have a 'Reveal' function in Layout. --That's some easy-to-code crap right there.

Too late. Even if they would add it, if you would load LWO in older LW, and save, or do it in other app writing LWO, they would be lost..
