Is there a way to print comments from Writer inline like MS Word?
If not, is someone working on it?
The current method is not sufficient. Either double the pages printed, which is a tremendous waste of paper or all in a list at the end, which is really clunky and hard to use. Printing from Writer to match the screen view would be tremendously helpful.
Comments functionality is great but not useful if not WYSIWYG = We should be able to print a document and see on paper what we see on the screen. Or the minimum is having a reference in the text and having "the comment below the page". Really bellow the page and not on a separate page.
A bug report about this was filed last year.

This is indeed missing from LibreOffice Writer. Please consider voting for this enhancement: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Vote_for_Enhancement#Bug_36815_-_Advanced_printing_capabilities_of_comments

This 'works' but emphasises the problem  Save document as .doc  open in the free Microsoft Office Word Viewer  Print - on paper or as .pdf (with appropritae driver e.g doPDF)
I hope mentioning other products (even free ones) is OK I am also hoping for a proper solution

If you want a reference in the text and a comment below the page, do
Insert > Footnote/Endnote...

I would very much like to see this feature added. The workarounds suggested above are not sufficient. (1) for working on a final manuscript draft, the footnotes are part of the text and adding additional footnotes is problematic. (2) I don't believe there is a MS office Word Viewer on OS X. Finally, please note that there has been some similar discussion on OpenOffice:
