Topic: Exporting comments from an 1800 page doc

Hi All

I am reviewing an 1800 page legal document. It was scanned from paper and I've processed the text with OCR. Nearly every page has a short comment. I've tried using the "print" comment function, but that gives me ~ 1700 pages of comments and most of the pages are nearly blank since the comments are just a sentence or two.

1. Is is possible to inline print the comments so more than one comment appears on a printed sheet? (Kind of like how the commenting window appears in Acrobat.)

2. Is it possible to export comments to Excel with the fields such as user, note, date and the comment in separate fields? Or maybe just the comment field?

3. Are there any plug in's that do this?

Thanks for any help you can provide

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
