Idea: Move or Copy/Paste comments across pages and design files

Loving the updates to comments! So much so, I’m using them WAY more than I ever have, but…

Commenters have accidentally added comments on the wrong page or file, or we’ve wanted to move items to different pages and keep the comments with the design elements they’re linked or in reference to.

It would be great if we could move or copy/cut and paste comments to other pages and files, maybe even consider treating comments as if they are design items/elements.

A similar idea I saw in another thread discussing the ability to pin comments to design elements, where the issue is to move the comments individually after moving the design element.

In this case, there is no equivalent workaround available and a new comment must be created, the content copied to the new comment, and the previous comment deleted or “resolved”.

I’d love for this to be considered in the comments updates!!

In the meantime, has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know of a plugin or workaround to help solve this?

When a comment is dropped on a page, it seems impossible to move it to another page. Yet that can be useful. I know comments can now be pinned to frames, and I suppose in that case the comment will follow if the frame is moved, however we can’t expect all our reviewers to remember to pin their comment to a frame. As the design evolves, we often need to move things around, including to new pages, and it’s troublesome if existing comments get stuck at irrelevant places.
