# Accessing a LaTeX code from comments to incorporate it in the answer

Suppose you wrote an answer, and people ask in the comments for details: so you answer the details in form of comments, but then, when you no longer can edit them, you would like your comments to be part now of your answer.

• Is there a way to do that, without having to write the LaTeX again?
• I mean, I'm not asking for being able to edit the comments, but for every user to be able to extract the code of her/his own comments.
• +1, I was thinking today to ask the same question. – jinawee Oct 18 '13 at 22:22
