Comments

Can be extracted by renaming the .shortcut file to a .plist and isolating the dictionary value for the Comment action.

I use this as a “Description” field that explains how the shortcut works (function), as well as “Notes” for how I personally utilize the shortcut (use case).

I have a shortcut that can extract all Comments from another shortcut, letting me pull out the Description and Notes before uploading them into Airtable or posting to my blog.
