Yes, this is the #1 reason we switched back to google docs to collaborate on design documents. Inline comments are essential, but were consistently getting lost / abandoned by our engineers.
We would overlook any of the other drawbacks and switch to Confluence for design docs with this one change.
+1 on this request for a page to view all inline comments. Inline comments can be very hard to find, and there's no way I can alert people to the existence of them unless I go into each and every comment separately and grab the link (from the timestamp on the comment).
For those who don't need to see them all in one place: once you've opened any inline comment by clicking on the commented text, the upper left of the header of that comment has navigation arrows for next/previous. So you can scroll through all the inline comments using that.
There is a plugin for Confluence Cloud that resolves this issue:
and it should be released for Server very soon as well ;)
So Atlassian, are you paying attention to your users here at all? We love plugins and are happy to pay for a few big important ones, but are not going to want to pay for ones that fill the gaps that the base product should provide. This is far worse when you work for a big org, and it can take forever to get approval for plugins, and then to get them installed.
Don't nickel and dime your customers and expect them to be happy
