Three Ways to Print PDFs with Comments and Mark-Ups in Adobe Acrobat DC


Hello, my name is Erin. My blog at ErinWrightWriting.com is all about sharing writing tips for the real world. Today’s tutorial is going to show you how to print PDFs with comments and mark-ups in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and Adobe Acrobat Standard DC. More specifically, we’ll look at how to print comment and mark-up summaries on separate pages, how to print mark-up and comments with lines to the text, And how to print comment and mark-up symbols without the corresponding text in the comment and mark-up pop-ups To print summaries of comments and mark-ups on separate pages from the text, select the Print button in the main toolbar. Then select the Summarize Comments button in the Print dialog box. Another dialog box will appear asking if you would like to include the summarized comments in the printout . Select Yes. Now select the Print button in the Print dialog box. You can also print comment and mark-up summaries on separate pages by selecting Print with Comment Summary in the Comment Pane’s Option menu. If you want to print comments and mark-ups with lines to the text, select the Tools tab, and then select the Comment button in the Tools Center. Select the Option menu in the Comment pane, and then Create Comment Summary. Now you can choose document and comments with connector lines on separate pages or document and comments with connector lines on single pages. You can also choose to print comments only or print the document and comments with sequenced numbers on separate pages. If you choose to do that, the sequenced numbers are like footnote numbers. Once you’ve made your choice, select the Create Comment Summary button. The comments summary will appear on a separate tab named Summary of Comments on then your file name. Select the Print button on the main toolbar and then the Print button in the Print dialog box. As an aside, if you would like to share the edited text with other reviewers without sharing the original document, you can choose to save the Summary of Comments as a separate PDF. You can also print PDFs with comment and mark-up symbols only instead of printing the symbols with the corresponding text in the comment and mark-up popups. Once again, select the Tools tab and then select the Comment button in the Tools Center. Now select the Options menu in the Comment pane, and then Commenting Preferences. In the Preferences dialog box, select Print notes and pop-ups and then OK. Now select the Print button in the main toolbar and ensure that Documents and Markups is selected in the Comments & Forms drop-down menu. Finally, select the Print button. Please note that Acrobat will keep Print notes and pop-ups selected in the preferences dialog box indefinitely. So remember to deselect that options if you don’t want future documents to print with comment and markup symbols.

    how I can fill a scanned form on pdf and then print it on empty original form so that only comments / or text is printed on original form, rather printing whole document with text on empty white paper ?I don't have pro version as I need to use my office version , or u have any other idea to do this like on ms word ?

    This doesn't seem to work with MAC versions. There is no "Create Comment Summary" option in the right hand comment pane. There used to me a way to print pop up comments on the right hand side of the page as the main text was reduced in size, but still quite useful. Can we get comments on the same page in MAC?

    This is why I hate Adobe. It was created by some idiot without commonsense or logic. For some reason it has become the standard and normal thinking people are forced to use it.
