Why is it not possible add a comment and tag it to a sketch entity while the sketch is being edited?

Adding a comment, while a sketch is open for editing, there is no provision for tagging a specific sketch entity. The comment is associated to the document. 

There is nothing in the comment that links it the the specific sketch the comment was made against. 

Also, it doesn't appear possible to tag a comment to things (Part, Surface, Mesh, Curve) that are listed in the "resultants" part of the "Feature List".

    Was I dreaming that it could not be done? Did something get "fixed"?

    I swear the "Tag" button in the Comments form was not there while the sketch was open for editing.

    I can't think of any changes we made recently!  But maybe that button is not as obvious as it could be!

    @Jake_Rosenfeld, I figured out what my problem was...

    You only have the ability to tag an entity during the comment creation process.
    Once the comment has been created the "Tag" option is not available.

    One can change what entity the tag points to, but one cannot add a entity tag to a comment that has been created without one.
    I do not understand why this is a restriction.
