do the following:
- make a document, write a sentence, then insert two comments (e.g. using Cmd-Shift-*) to different parts of the text.
- do not insert footnotes or other stuff
- compile the document to docx or doc format and in the „footnotes/comments“ section of the compile settings make sure that you have chosen „Remove footnotes“ and „Export to RTF as: Margin comments“.
In the resulting Word document, the two comments will fall together, both applied to the first of the two text passages. The second text passage commented inside the Scrivener document will be left untouched.
Now, make the same compile but remove the check mark from the „Remove footnotes“ option. After compiling, the comments will come out correctly applied to the two different text passages.
So, If there are more than two comments in a compiled draft (may be in different documents, and also the two initial ones may be in different documents) the first two will always be on the initial comment and thus the remaining comments will have “shifted up” so they actually apply to the wrong text.
It should not be the case, that the „Remove footnotes“ option changes the behavior of where the comments are placed,.i.e. misplaces the second one and all the remaining ones.
