I created 4 comments in a document. I then edited the text to include the changes referenced by them, and tried to delete them.

2 of the comments kept coming back. :mrgreen:

I created two of them by selecting phrases within a line ("Change word here"), and two by selecting the whole paragraph ("Rewrite this - clunky"). I deleted all 4 comments using the " -- " button at the top of the Inspector/Comments and Footnotes. The latter two came back every time I left that document page and returned, or even if I clicked on another tab in the Inspector and went back to the comments tab.

In the end, I deleted them and immediately quit Scrivener. Upon reload they had gone. Perhaps some problem with them being retained in memory, but not in the saved file?
