I have various charts of data and would like to add text comments to highlight issues on the chart. Is there any way to do this?

If the chart is in edit mode, you can use its drawing toolbar. Not all shapes are available, but you will find a "Text box" and a "Callout". The drawings are put in front of the chart elements. If the drawing toolbar is disabled, go to menu View > Toolbars > Drawing.

For anyone who wonders the same as me: there is a long open bug with the font size of text, using the text box from the drawing toolbar in Calc:

Thanks for your answer. I want to add comments to my chart. But your link to adding comments to a sheet is useful. Thanks.
