3. Type your comment and then, click Comment.

Note: To tag your teammate, type @ and then their name. Your tagged teammate will then receive a notification email alerting them to the comment and prompting them to respond.



To edit, delete or change the icon color of your comment, click the three dots on the right of the comment entry box and select your options as required.

When you feel like emphasizing a comment, you may consider using bold, italics, or underline.



Replying to a Comment

1. Click on the comment itself, or the icon and type your reply in the field underneath. 

2. When you're done, select Reply.

- Click inside a comment in the Panel to add a reply note to the comment.
- Click inside a note in the Panel, then click the three dots that appear on the right to edit or delete it. (Deleting it in the panel will also delete it from the document.)

Tip:  When several people comment on a file, the responses are saved in a sequence below the first comment. (The flow of responses and comments in Lumin is the same as you see in Google Docs).

Tip: You can select the Comment tool by pressing N on your keyboard.

Tip: You can also add a comment to a document by writing the comment on the document in free text. Find out how here
