Immersion comments

I recently translated a sentence, and left a comment with it explaining a particular aspect of my translation. An hour or so later I realized I made a mistake in my translation and edited it. Apparently editing your own translation causes the associated comment to disappear? Is this intentional, a bug, or an oversight?
Thanks!

This has been changed so that now when you edit your own translation, you can also edit the comment you left (if any). So by default, your previous comment will carry over instead of disappearing. You can also edit the comment without changing the translation.

It has always been like this. So I always copy/paste my comment when I want to change something in my translation.

I did the same thing last week. I can't answer your question, but I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.

Yes, it disappears. :(

Jrikhal is right, of course, though it often takes me ages to sort this out as new typing results in a new typing error to be corrected and then you forget to cut and paste and then you have to change correct text to incorrect text and back again to reinstate it etc etc etc...
