Ability to add step comments in the Trainer

When writing software with code the standard practice is to comment as much as possible.

The mabl Trainer does a great job at explaining 'what' it's doing (e.g. assert "search" of current URL contains "Test"). But we would like the ability to add custom comments in per step to explain our 'why' logic (e.g. assert that the search contains the test keyword).

See attached image as example.

    Hi, Harry! Thank you for all the great suggestions.

    How would you differentiate this from using an "echo" step to explain the why? I'd love to hear your ideas on this.

    Hey Stephen, the echo step is currently isolated from any other steps. I would like to see a direct relationship to steps with comments. There are some steps which Mabl tells me what it's doing, but I want to more clearly provide the why. See the attached image for a mock-up of what that could look like on the journey output.
