Where to set Component Description

I’m on Knime 4.1.1 and I can’t figure out how to set component and output port descriptions. In knime 3 in the wrapped nodes the output node had a Descriptions tab in which I could set the output port name and description. This is missing from Component Output.




Same for Component Input and the component description.

I can edit them in settings.xml (if the containing workflow is closed) but were do I do it in the GUI?
