I got a lot of fairly long comments in my odt, right now the comment display takes about 1/6 of the width of the main text (in print layout), is there a way to increase the width of the comment section so that more comment can be displayed in one line?

Take a look at, now imagine I have 10 comments per page, each comment has 5 lines, there's not enough space on the right hand side, so each comment can only show one or two lines. I want to increase the comment panel's width so that I can display more text in one or two lines.

It is not exactly the solution you are seeking. I haven't found a way yet to do exactly what you are describing in your original statement, but I think that would be a very useful feature. I am also struggling with fairly long comments in my documents.

What I did to kind of circumvent this problem is to lower the User Interface Scaling in Tool>Options>LibreOffice>View>Interface Scaling>Scaling. This has made the display of long notes better in my environment. I'm running LibreOffice 4.2 in Ubuntu 13.10.

Could be a good idea to post your question as a wished feature somewhere on LibreOffice forums I think.

From two major failures of himself, Mr. Le Vinh Son said that young people do not have enough experience so it is easy to make mistakes. If you pay the price and stand up, there's more lessons. 2 player games still wanted to develop but eventually went where he left or just went on stage.
