When I right-click on a cell, the option to enter a comment no longer appears on the drop-down menu.  Any suggestions?

@sjcordone 

Is that Excel for Android, Mac, Windows or Web and which version?

Windows
The ability to enter comments had been available to me as recently as the past November.

@sjcordone 

Is that the same

- for any file

- in safe mode

- after Office repair

?

@Sergei Baklan It appears to be the same for all files.  I am not in safe mode.  I have not performed any repairs.

@sjcordone 

I'd try both. That could be conflict with add-in, that could be bug in concrete build or even instance, thus repair/update. All together that's max half an hour job.
