Add publishing task setting to include comments in PDF

Unread postby MartinAP » Wed May 29, 2019 2:05 pm

When publishing to PDF using Quick Publish, it is possible to include author comments by ticking the corresponding checkbox ('Publish PDF file with design comments'). However, I have created several publishing tasks for which I would like to include comments, too, but the settings for publishing tasks don't include such a checkbox. Therefore, it would be great if this could be added to the settings for publishing tasks!

First of all, I'm happy that it has been included! However, after installing the current maintenance update, I just tried it out and, although the checkbox is there now in the task properties, the PDF output still doesn't seem to include comments even though the new checkbox is ticked.

Sorry, I hadn't tested that myself yet, just confirmed what was in the new change log. I just tried it out and can confirm that there appears to be a problem. I've alerted our developers. :shock:
