thanks for replying
this happens automatically in the editor when using the keyboard shortcut to make any line of text a comment, and although not really a hard or fast rule of commenting, it's just one of those small things that save a couple of keystrokes when an user is in the zone writing code and commenting along the way.
currently when this happens, momentum comes to a halt at the point where the comment line formatting scrambles because i find myself having to go back to the mis-formatted/mis-aligned comment to manually go back to clean up and align that comment. one comment is def trivial but if you're commenting regularly as you're writing out code on the fly, it winds up costing time and brings momentum to a crawl.
the best way i know how to demonstrate this is through comparison between sublime's editor and codio ide in the way it handles the commenting i'm referring to (both editors are my go to editors for desktop and cloud respectively)

something worth considering and can be left for the community to decide whether or not this is a codio ide improvement worth pursuing
