Feature request: toggle comments on/off

When I create sample code for my students, I often include lots of comments for them, and it would be amazing if there was a simple way to toggle those comments on and off. Once students have processed the comments, hiding them and seeing a streamlined and uncluttered version of the code would be helpful.

If that feature existed, I also suspect that students might be more inclined to add comments to their own code more often.


Welcome to the forum! :wink:

Which code editor are your students using? Do they use the p5 web editor?

Because depending on the IDE, there might be functionalities to hide comments :

And in the p5 web editor, you can fold functions, blocks and multiline comments but not single line comments. Feel free to open an issue on GitHub for a feature enhancement :
