Feauter request: Notes and/or comments in results section

Discuss the jamovi platform, possible improvements, etc.

It would be great if we could write notes into results section like to comment on why we decide to do what, comment on results etc. just have an option to insert a line of text between analysis blocks. Both SPSS and Jasp provided such option and I dearly miss it in Jamovi. Nothing fancy, just a plain text field. I am sure it would be very helpful for education as for a notepad of my work.

That would be great, looking forward. I guess no special features needed, very basic text formatting and that it.

Hey! I wanted to check on how does it look like with adding this feature, do you have any guesstimate when we can have this?

I come here to write a similar feature request and glad to see someone already did. It would be great to have this feature as soon as possible.

And as always, thank you guys for this great project.



Note: As a terrible and crude workaround, I used Rj Editor to take notes between the analyses

Plus one for both this feature request and Rj editor as the current workaround.

I have an improved version of this request.

Please could we have the ability to add a Heading comment to the output and have a drop-down (for example) navigation menu (could be to the left of "+ Modules" to hyperlink to that section of the output?

I add my 2-cents to this idea. The possibility to add a small text just before and after an analysis would be beneficial imho so that, when we open a save file, we can read the null-hypothesis and the interpretation of the author of the analysis. Or a joke, if the author is in the mood.

It reminds of another old feature request about the possibility to re-rorganize the output-window so we could put, for example, the Assmption checks, then the analysis, then the post-hoc test of an Anova.

Would you have updates about either of this, please?

Keep up the good work, cheers :D
