Hello,

currently, single configuration entries in WinSize2 are identified by their respecive window title (or mask).
Unfortunately, there is software out there where it is not easy to infer from the window title back to the issuing software. This makes it hard to find and/or modify entries later.

Therefore, it would be great to have an opportunity to add an optional comment to single configuration entries. This would make it much more easy to recover entries belonging to some specific software later.
It would also be great to be able to select entries by their comments.

Thanks for your work & regards
Mario

    nice idea - let me see if I can realize it in one of the next editions.

    BUT realize that any window with that name (and class) will be assigned that comment. E.g. insert a "Search" window with call "#32770" and comment "Notepad++" into the list. The normal Notepad - find with that name and class will have the comment "Notepad++" too.

    Oh no, I did not mean to change the window title itself.
    I just meant a comment in WinSize2 to ease the identification of configuration items.
    Like in the Windows Firewall config for example - the name you give the items doesn't really matter but it later helps to identify a specific entry again.

    This feature will be added in the 2.33. For testing: send your mail-adrs to magra19.
