Hi, I've noticed that imported PDF comments appear in InDesign's PDF Comments list in a completely different order than they appear in Acrobat's comments list. Acrobat seems to adhere to a top-to-bottom, left-to-right order, which makes sense. But InDesign lists them in random order. I think it's displaying them in the chronological order that the comments were created? The result is, as you click through the comments in InDesign, the cursor jumps randomly all over the page. (Hey, at least they're grouped by page!)
I like to follow along with the Acrobat window also open, so I can scan for formatting like bold and italic (that's another feature deficient in InDesign) and apply the necessary local formatting after accepting a change. But I have to jump up and down in Acrobat's list to find the corresponding comments, because InDesign's order is so weird. Is there a way to have the comment order match up?
Thanks. I think the only answer really is to have Adobe fix the display order of comments in InDesign so that it matches Acrobat. Even if you don't have to match it up with the PDF, if there are a lot of comments you'll find it difficult to follow the cursor as it jumps maddeningly all over the page when you step through the comment list.
