where qlikSense display the metadata set by 'comment field' ? tooltip somewhere?

hello,

I'll use 'comment field' script statement to put some documentation but at use of the app QS do not show it. 

Under QV, these metadata is loaded into a tooltip asssigned to the 'field' object (top of column, legend of charts, ...)

What about QS where is it supposed to be showed ? 

thanks for any help.

Manu

The "Comment" value is displayed in the "Data model viewer" when you select a specific column.  You will see the Comment listed just below: "Tags" at the bottom-left of the screen.


Apart from that I'm not sure where else it can be accessed from. It would be nice if Qlik added another "system field" like $Field and $FieldNo (e.g. $FieldComment).

Alternatively, I would be just as happy if Dimensions and Measures could be created from the Load Script where we could populate the Dimension and Measure descriptions from an external Metadata store.
