     Just a personal thought that at least would appear to do what is
wanted: apply a highlight color to the selected text. Then click in the
middle of the selected text and add the comment.

Hi :)
I am never quite sure what people mean by "comments" as the term seems to be used  differently 
in different places. 

Can you select an area of text and then
Format - Character
and then use one of those tabs to add something like alternate text or something?  I think i 
am going completely the wrong direction for what is required.
Apols and regards from
Tom :)

Subject: LibreOffice 3.4.4 (Writer) - make comment refer to selected text rather than cursor 
Date: Saturday, 12 November, 2011, 16:12

Hi Tom,I've asked the following question a couple of times at the LibreOffice user support 
mailing list, but no response so far.  It sounds like you may possibly have some idea.
- Thanks.  Steve A.

=====* I would like to insert a comment that refers to some text that I have selected (a 
phrase or sentence), rather than a single cursor point. 
* I tried selecting the desired text, then clicking Insert/ Comment (or Ctrl-Alt-C), but 
the resulting comment points to the beginning point of the selected text, rather than the 
whole thing. 
* Is there any way to do this?  I looked at the documentation and FAQ but can't see anything.
