Easily select/copy/paste/export comments
As a designer I want to export all comments so that when I go into a review I can have them as notes to review with the client.
I'll know this is done when I can view all comments by page and easily copy/paste/export them all at once. Think like a comment feed.
Thanks Craig McRae, also used your JS, saved me so much heartache!
Thanks Craig McRae - that JS was super helpful.

For companies that need to document their processes it is HIGHLY important to be able to export & archive all the comments to an XD design outside of XD. Please find a way to do this soon. It will prevent using XD in large certified companies since this is a feature request in solution comparisons.

I hope this helps everyone here. I whipped something up for a client of mine that was having the same issue. Some straightforward JS that you can pop in the console and run. The output is comma delimited CSV that is easily imported and reviewed in excel.
This will not clean the comments and will not account for user errors. (example: filling out the username content with a comment).
Annotation numbers only appear for the active page in the preview pane. You can run this separately for each page where there are many annotations, but you will either need to save the csv for each or manually modify the content of your CSV file.
And the ability to notify the commenters when their comments are resolved or rejected.

Yes! Export & Archive comments, please.
This is so important there has to be a way to print / save the comments.
I Agree! This is highly necessary.
Yes, agree - this is critical. As a designer, I need to be able to at least export the comments as a PDF so I can choose to either print them and mark off as I go through changes, take them in when I see a client (if I can't take an iPad to the meeting) or simply to back up the PDF on my computer in case something happens to the prototype (just recently I accidentally deleted a prototype with comments before I was finished with it... what a nightmare).
Also want this. As a product manager, this would help with annotations and requirements. Being able to export the full list as a txt file or something else would help those comments/annotations live elsewhere in other documentation.
Also helpful to export comments and add to a contract addendum
