Can I make FrameMaker text edits show in the Comment List in the PDF?

When I revise FrameMaker docs, I use edit tracking to show my reviewers where the changes are. So in the PDF, they must scroll through the doc and look for the green or red text.

Is there any way to make the FrameMaker text edits show in the Comments List in Adobe Acrobat? That way, my reviewers wouldn't have to scroll through the PDF, they could just click on the changes in the list. Some of my docs are hundreds of pages, and I really don't want to mark changes manually in Acrobat.

When I was dealing with regulatory documentation in a previous life, I used to include a change log. It took a few minutes to set up, but it was worth it (three or four times a year) to keep the reviewers happy; someone who knows more about these things might even be able to script it. I used custom conditions rather than out-of-the-box change-tracking, so we could manage changes going back over ten years or more.

I'll attach a picture, since I can't upload a .pdf to Dropbox from behind the firewall. All the entries in the change log were, of course, hyperlinks.

Looking forward to reading about an easier way, though!

Sounds like a good suggestion for an enhancement to me ;>)
