× Writer and Comments

Thu Jun 20, 2013, 1:12 PM
We've just launched an integration of Writer into comments on deviantART to Beta Testers! As you may know, Writer allows rich text editing of literature and journal deviations on deviantART, and we are excited to expand this functionality to more areas of the site. Once beta testing is complete, some aspects will be available to all members, while others will be limited to Premium Members.

The new "Add Media" button allows rich text editing and multiple other features to be employed on these comments. Not only does it improve on functionality that already exists in comments, it also pulls in the full power of the Writer application into your comments, completely revolutionizing creative communication. 
  • Add formatting to comments with the formatting toolbar!
  • The Emoticons tab of the sidebar gives you access to official and community-created emoticons.
  • Premium Members can add images to comments using the "Add Media" sidebar.
    • The Conversation tab shows deviations already included on the page.
    • The tab shows items in your
    • The deviantART tab shows deviations from anywhere on deviantART. Up to five deviations can be included in a comment.

Try it out!

Comment Writer is usable on all comments on deviantART! Feel free to test it out by clicking "Add Media" when commenting on artwork, Profiles, Journals, and anywhere else you leave comments.

Any feedback you have can be left on this article, and if you encounter any bugs or issues, please file a ticket in the #devBUG Issue Tracker under the Comment Writer project.

An integration of Writer into comments on deviantART has just been launched to Beta Testers!

I have question, how do you change the font size? I've seen smaller font in comments and in journals, etc., and I would like to use that tool.

I would like to ask something I can't solve at the moment. I submitted an image from I submitted it only into a group where I'm admin, it's not in my gallery. I had some comments under the image what was written when it was in But when I submitted the image, the comments disappeared. I would like to insert them somehow. How could I do it? :////

Hi there! If you go to the deviation page of that image, there should be a menu that appears at the top of the comments section that looks like this:

If you select that menu and change it to " Comments", like this:

The page should reload, and you should see the comments that were left in before publishing. I hope that helps! :)

Will people still see the comments made in after uploading it?

Hi there! If someone comments on one of your files and you publish that file to deviantART afterward, there will be a link on the deviation page visible only to you that will let you switch between viewing comments left on deviantART and comments left when it was in :)
