Display the "Comments" of a note during presentation

So far, the "Comments" section of a Mental Case note is only visible while editing the note. I think this feature would be more helpful if the user could also display this short comment while reviewing the notes during a presentation, for instance by automatically adding an additional facet called "Comments" or by displaying a visual 'Reminder' next to the note.

I've been using Mental Case excessively for learning languages, and I feel the "Comments" section would be a great chance to add synonyms or related words to a foreign word. However, in its present state, I wouldn't benefit from adding comments to notes, given that they are only shown while editing the note.

I hope you understand my suggestion, and it would be very nice to see what could be gained by adding comments to notes. I would be very thankful to see more updates to Mental Case, and hope you keep up the great work you have been doing!

    Hi Ann,
    The purpose of comments was really to include text that you *didn't* want in your study session. It's just convenient to have a place for metadata — stuff like where the note came from, links to web sites, etc.
    In terms of your suggested uses, I recommend simply including that as extra facets in your note's content. You can add as many facets as you like, and could include synonyms and foreign words on extra facets. Note that you can also have these extra facets not appear in slideshows. There is an option for that on the back of each facet.
    Thanks for the feedback.
    Kind regards,
