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,

Ah - OK - I'll try ...

If I select the "print to file option" I have only the postscript option, and then I have exactly
the same problems.

In addition: the Page numbers are omitted in the ps2txt step - strange but true.

I can convert the resulting .ps file to a .odt or equivalent via abiword, as mentioned above.

Thanks for your help,
