Print a comment summary

Summarizing comments is a convenient way to get a synopsis of all the comments associated with a PDF. When you summarize comments, you can either create a new PDF with comments that you can print, or you can print the summary directly. The summary is neither associated with nor linked to the PDF that the comments are derived from.

By default, Acrobat prints PDFs with any stamps that were applied. For the greatest control over how comments are printed, choose  > Print With Comments Summary from the Comment list.

  1. Filter the comments to show only those you want in the summary. (In the Comments list, click Filter Comments and choose the categories of comments you want to show.)
  2. For the greatest control over how comments are printed, choose  > Print With Comments Summary. Alternatively, to create a separate PDF of the comments, choose  > Create Comment Summary.
  3. In the Create Comment Summary dialog box, do the following:
    • Choose a layout for the document and comments. The layout determines available options.

    • Choose how to sort the comments.

    • Specify a page range and choose whether to include pages without comments.

    • Select whether you want all comments to appear in the summary or only the comments that currently appear.

  4. Click Create Comment Summary.
