Comment interaction is frustrating

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
    If you miss-click and enter in the “new comment” mode, you’re trapped!
    A click outside tries to create another comment, you have to type ESC.
    .
    It’s also impossible to jump between comments mouse-only, when the modal covers the comments (!!)
    .
    A click outside should close the new comment, only the second click should trigger a new comment.

  2. Add as much context as possible (screenshots, Figma files, mockups, etc.)
    A video of the problem

  3. Ask questions to bring the community into the conversation
    Does anyone else experience this?
    It used to be different, wasn’t it?

I know, right. It’s so hard to jump between comments, seem like It’s designed for the one who writes a comment, not the one who reads it.

Exactly, I have to use stickies card to be naming my comment on each design so people won’t miss the point which is quite daunting.

100%. I click away from the comment and it starts another one, then I end up tapping “v” on my keyboard to exit the mode but end up typing in the new comment box.

This whole interaction is annoying.
It doesn’t help that I can’t look at the comments and edit my designs at the same time either. I keep having to turn the comment mode on/off constantly to go back and forth but this interaction makes it harder.
