How to add "comments" section to a screen

I edited my workflow and am in the process of creating a new screen for a step in my workflow. I would like this screen to have a comment box so developers can add a comment when the screen appears. In the "configure screen" page I do not see any way to add comments to a screen. How can I do this?

So it turns out that a comment box is automatically added to screens. This is not documented anywhere I can tell.

Just create an empty screen :)

Is there a way to VIEW all comments on such a screen? There's always an empty box to add a new comment, but it would be helpful to see existing comments as well!

Empty screen shows a lot of fields I don't want: End Date, Total Days Spent, Frustration, Morale, etc.

Copy any default screen and remove all the feilds on the new screen.

you'll see only comment feild on the new scree.
