Description Javen O'Neal 2016-04-06 06:34:38 UTC
There are a lot of details that the user has to concern themselves with when creating a cell comment, as the quick-guide shows [1].

Perhaps this could be consolidated into one or two utility functions (CellUtil, perhaps) to make it easier to create new cell comments.

static void addCellComment(Cell cell, CellRangeAddress anchor, String/RichTextString comment, String author);
