Not sure if this is a bug or not, but when i type:
announce [this will show;this wont show]
Anything after " ; " won't show up.
it also gives me an error when i put it on the procedure tab "Missing ] in

This is what the Help has to say about it:

Programming / Programming Environment / Comments In Procedures:

You can also put comments inside procedures by inserting a semicolon. Any text between a semicolon and a carriage return is ignored.

to dance
; this procedure launches 3 processes.
launch [flute]
forever [circle]
waituntil [done? "flute]
cancel [circle]

Note: The semi-colon only has this function in the Procedures Tabs. You cannot insert comments into instruction fields in the Rules Tab of a backpack (OnClick, OnColor...) or in a button's dialog box.
