Cannot Edit Comments

After I make a Highlight, I then use the option to 'Add a Note To Highlight'. This way I can combine notes and highlights; it's very handy!

However, sometimes I'd like to comeback to the highlight and the subsequent note and add to it. For example after reading few more pages and I don't necessarily need to create another note, as simple addition to the previous can be sufficient at certain times. That can occur for several reasons, 1) the first highlight is highly relevant, 2) the fewer notes the better. P. S. I extract the notes to Zotero.

The problem is this. The annotation to the highlight cannot be edited for some bizarre reason. The only use I can see for the feature is the tracking of chronological additions. But my work is my own, I don't need this feature and not being able to edit is really frustrating. Zotero does not see the comments on comments, if you will.

It'd be great if I could edit my own comments.

Okay, gonna answer my own question for others. So discovered they can be edited BUT ONLY via the top right corner where you access your comments, bookmarks. There you just long press and select the pencil and you can edit. You cannot edit any other (easier) way like pressing the note in the test directly, or tapping on the highlight and then pressing the already existing text, alas. But as long as I can edit them, I don't care.
