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.
5.5 years and still not a priority for @adobe

I've just finished a few round of revision on a large project and the client wanted to get all feedback exported into a google doc and get answers in the format. Image the pain and waste of time it took me because there is no way to simply export or select all.
Would be great to expend this feature and provide export option. Adding the pins is great the first time but clients doesn't engage properly on replying on the pins.
Comments and review definitly would benefit of an enhancement or feature review at some point to make it stronger.

Exporting comments is important to keep track of client change requests in other programs.

Any update on this, badly needed, once you get beyond a few screens comments become a pain to manage.
I lost all my comments after an Adobe Creative Cloud outage. I have to go back to my client and tell them they wasted their time.
The export comment feature would increase the reliability of the product. Now, I can't use the comment feature anymore until then.

It is critical to export comments - especially when you hand the project over and need to give them the comments along side.
Ben Northern commented
Yes please - this is a critical feature. Having an easily extractable record of comments is crucial for maintaining an audit trail. Please expedite!

having the ability to not only enhance the commenting tools to align with acrobat's commenting features.. But export as a pdf where the comments fall inline on each page would be a valuable enhancement!

My comments have been lost after switch my prototype to a different flow /o\. And there is no easy way to access them through the notification modal. This is a epic fail adobe.
Thanks Craig McRae, also used your JS, saved me so much heartache!
Thanks Craig McRae - that JS was super helpful.

This is similar to Axure Design Specs documentation.

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).
