Is it possible to include the comments on a page when exporting to a pdf?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Exporting Content to Word, PDF, HTML and XML

Is it possible to include page comments when exporting to PDF?

I have found the way to include the comments when exporting to HTML, however, then the commenters name does not appear, but instead the user ID. For our purposes, this is not useful.

Is there a certain script which can be used in customizing the PDF stylesheet which include the comments?

Hi Rachel,  sorry Confluence does not export comments to PDF.  

Although you can customise the PDF export layout and stylesheet (see Customise Exports to PDF), I'm not sure you would be able to make it include the comments, as it is not processed as part of the export. Hopefully someone else from the community will chime in if they have discovered a way to do this. 

There is an add-on from K15t that extends Confluence's PDF export capabilities, but I'm not sure whether it has an option to include comments.  https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.k15t.scroll.scroll-pdf/server/overview

As a workaround, export the word file, then copy/paste the comments from the Wiki page into the word document. You get a bit of junk, like images and reply/delete/like links but its fine for occasional exports of stable documents.

Hi Rachel, how did you manage to include the comments exporting to HTML? 

I am also stuck in exporting comments. Any format, any help is welcome!

Thanks!!

I created a user macro which includes the comments into the page body to be printed and exported as PDF.
