Description Hamid 2017-08-17 10:42:48 UTC

RTL documents show the comments on the left side of the screen. When selecting to print the document including its comments in the margin, the highlights and bubbles are ok, but the margin is on the right side of the paper. It means comments are misplaced. the result is a shrank text with blank right margin.

I don't think this is RTL specific, I tested as LTR, and it is the same.
