note:    If a comment or track change has been imported from a review PDF, any changes to that comment or track change is not imported on further import of comments from the same PDF.

Import of comments added to SWFs

RoboHelp imports the comments added to SWFs and places them near the inserted SWFs. You can track the comments from the Review Pane pod. The comments are not associated with slides.

Import of comments added to placeholders, snippets, and headers and footers

For topic TOCs, breadcrumbs, snippets, and headers and footers in master pages, RoboHelp places comments above or below these elements. It does not insert the comments in the location where they were added in the PDF. Insertions and deletions are also imported as sticky notes.
