Did you enable the option to copy the selected text into the highlights? If so, you can use the Summarize Comments command from the Print dialog:

If you didn't, I strongly recommend you do it now (under Edit - Preferences - Commenting).

It will only apply to comments you create from this moment on, though.

For past comments you can retroactively copy the selected text into them using this (paid-for) tool I've developed: https://www.try67.com/tool/acrobat-retroactively-copy-highlighted-text-into-comments

And you could use this other (also paid-for) tool to generate a more compact comments summary in Reader:

You're right... Very silly restriction, which makes the Summarize Comments command practically useless.

So I think your tool has a future!
