Printing MS Office docs to PDF with comments incorporated into the PDF file

Post by jcaiken » Mon Jun 10, 2019 3:24 am

I find the MS comments almost unusable when compared to the PDF-X system.
Is there any way to print my Word and Excel files to PDF that will incorporate the original comments as PDF comments?
If not then can I suggest that this feature be added into the PDF-X Lite driver and/or Office addin?

Hi jcaiken,

Thanks for the post - We're looking into this possibility now, but we're not sure that it's possible as Word comments are quite strange and do not map very well (if at all) to PDF annotations. Given that, we can't make any promises at this time.

Thanks,
