Printing comments from Writer inline like MS Word?

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. Thanks in advance.

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 advance.the text and having "the comment below the page". Really bellow the page and not on a separate page.
