TIP 118: Choosing Which Comments to Export

You can choose certain groups of comments to export in the Import Comments from Adobe Acrobat dialog. First decide how much you want to edit the Word document, and then choose a type of export accordingly. You don't want to import all the comments into the document if your intention is to simply correct the content of the document. For example, you might not want to deal with comments that address responsibility for actions, office politics, and so on. By the same token, you might not want to make corrections without having supporting comments from the person who suggested the changes.

Back and Forth

You can either work from Acrobat and export the comments using the Comment menu's commands, or you can work from Word and import the comments using the commands on the Acrobat Comments menu. Which is better? Your choice depends on where you are in a particular workflow. If you have finished working with a group of comments, work from within Acrobat; if you have the source document open in Word, work from within Word.

If you have the document open in Word, choose Acrobat Comments > Import Comments from Acrobat. You use the same dialogs and options from within Word as you do from Acrobat, as described in the previous tip. If you want to read the instructions for comment imports again, you can access them by choosing Acrobat Comments > Show Instructions.
