I have run into several situations where I write out a method, and then later go back and write a detailed comment (style //** ... */) on how the method works.

I often forget to go through "Generate Element Comment" before I add the comment.

Question: Is there a way to select the comment and the method in the editor and link/attach one to the other?

The advantage of attaching/linking comment and method is that:
1) comment appears in mouse over wherever the method is called,
2) you can hide both comment and method code in the editor by left-clicking the little '+' signs in the editor, and
3) Comment stays with the method in javadoc.

Only thing I have found is cut and paste once method is selected and "Generate Element Comment" command is invoked.
