I am workiong on a review using LibreOffice, and it works very nice - especially the
"print comments at the end of the document" is very usefull. Now editors want the authors
to reply to the comments individually, so it would be nice if the comments, including the
line numbers and the pages, could be simply copied out of the document into the response to
the editor. My question: is it possible to get the comments, in the same format with line
numbers as in "print comments at the end of thew document", in a text file? any format
(txt, odt, ...) would be fine.

A possible work-around, which I have used to extract the text of the notes from an Impress 

- Print your dicument to file as a .pdf

- Use pdftotext to extract the text to a .txt file.



PS pdeftotxt is a Linux prog; dont know about doing it under MS Windows(R)

Thanks for the tip - yes, I am working on Linux, but the text is converted to pictures in the
pdf - I am using the CUPS pdf printer. Can I use a different printer?


I found a solution:

1) Print to postscript file the comments only
2) open the postscript file with abiword (libreoffice is not working) and save it as e.g. doc

There it is.

I think it would be a good idea for these usage scenarios, to have the option to *export* the
comments to a new .odt file for further processing.
