Allow Comments in Model Tree

Allow Comments in Model Tree

It would be great to be able to write a short description of what I am doing and why before each feature or group of features - just so that when I (or some other poor soul) have to modify it later, I have an idea of how to proceed.

I use Annotations currently, but the character limit is crippling.

I use annotations both as "bookmarks" in the model tree, and also as a "READ_ME" note at the top to explain things.  There is a character limit on the feature name, but I haven't run into a limit in the note itself.

I use datum points as 'book ends' for groups of like features.  I make the name start with 2 underscores (__) and then hide the points.  This makes them stand out well in the tree:

Having a built in comments function would be helpful, however.

That's why i like the annotation feature.  It's a little cumbersome, but you can write paragraphs if you want to!  My READ_ME note is pretty long.

It would be nice to have a special functionality that the model-tree is clearly structured with something that looks different than a normal feature. For example a horizontal line before or after a small comment.
