How to enable 'comment on file' option?


I can't comment on images and other files. It seems this Add-on is enabled. See?

What am I missing?

Hello @Emily Fink ,

Do you mean that you can not add comments when uploading an attachment ?


No, I mean I can't add a comment on the image or file. When I click to open an image or file, I see this (see attachment here). Notice the comment icon at the bottom is missing? no comments allowed.JPG

Thank you for trying to help, btw. =)

Which version of confluence are you using now? Can you add comment on other page ?


Our program was upgraded in June. I can't find where the version is listed? Your screenshot, that's what I'm missing.
