Why can I see revisions of my comments but cannot edit them?

Sorry if that has been already asked - I'm not sure I searched at the right places for that issue.

For each comment I have made, the "Actions" button shows several actions, namely "See revisions", "Delete" and "Convert to answer".

It misses the obvious "Edit" facility, and without that, why should I see revisions?

Or is that a matter of lacking reputation?

    Apparently the issue has been solved in the meantime (don't know exactly when):

    So thanks, SCN!

    (I'll accept my own answer, as there is no official "It has been solved" answer here...)

    Hi Volker, Thank you for posting your question. You should be able to edit your own comments. Was your experience from a comment you aded to a blog post or a question? Can you include the link to a post with one of your comments that you cannot edit, so we can investigate further. Thank you!

    • Hi Osvaldo, Your feedback helps us improve:) Editing comments is intended, the setting will be reinstated. There is more discussion to be had regarding the ability to edit after it's been replied to, which may have been the source of the confusion. Moshe can comment on the status of the idea in IdeaPlace.

    Nobody can edit comments right now.

    SAP puts "Under review" this IDEA "Edit Comments in Q&A", please vote UP.

    Regards,
    Oswald.

    Hi Friends,

    But if talking about a work-around here for the user, then Mr. Volker. what you can do here is, as you can also see from the above last post screen-shot, you are getting an option to convert it to Answer & then, you will get an Edit option for your Answer. After you have submitted your answer, then again you can convert that back to Comment to this Q&A Thread as whoever answer like Caroleigh's Answer or to your original Post or to mine Answer wherever you want to put/adjust/move your comment. And speaking of which, this is what i also have been doing since, to me this is, the till now available option for us since we are not Moderators or SCN Admins.

    Thanks,

    Kaushik
