Is there a way to store row annotations in a better way?

It seems to be supported Cell Annotations - Apache OpenOffice Wiki

Select a cell
Click on the menu item:
Insert - Comment
Then type-in or paste the text of the annotation

How to format the comment text:
image description

…or please give us some more details about your problem.

thanks - that did the trick

anyway to format the comments in the box - bigger/smaller with formatting tags to improve readability?

Select the text in the Comment box, and increase the font size.

See it at my answer.
