editable comments in Control Center

    I'd like to have a simple editable text field in the Control Center where I can add some quick notes or description for each VM. As a developer with numerous Ubuntu VMs, it is a nuisance to try to remember what I did in each VM. I could I supposed use Notes or a Google Doc, but it would sure be convenient to quickly update a description. An alternative would be to change the VM's name, but that just doesn't seem like the right approach)

    Hi KimonR,

    You can change the description in the VM configuration, General Tab.
    It will be then shown in the Expanded View of the Control Center. It is not very quick and convenient way if you change descriptions often, but otherwise it works just fine.

    I also recommend to use Colours (right click VM and select a colour band to apply) and then arrange by Tag (View menu). It helps to navigate quickly through multiple VMs. The feature is available in Pro Edition.
