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 presentation:
- Print your dicument to file as a .pdf
- Use pdftotext to extract the text to a .txt file.

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?

Dont use the CUPS .pdf printer, use the LO Print "print to file" option,
               You need only two tools, a hammer and duct tape.
              If it doesn't move and it should, use the hammer.
                  If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.
