Writer has the useful feature of adding comments, which are shown in an extra margin. However, the size of this margin is fixed. For a text with many and/or long comments (e.g. a collaborative project with comments from several people), the comment margin can become quite messy. At the same time, today's wide screens typically allow plenty of room for a wider comment margin.
It is requested to allow the user to scale the margin for comments. This would allow the user to change the margin to his or her preference.
The scaling could be implemented as a moveable marker, in the same way as text margins can be changed, possibly supplemented with a point under Settings.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Writer.
2. Write som text.
3. Add a comment by Insert -> Comment (or Alt-Ctrl-C)
Comment is shown in right margin with a fixed width, which apparently cannot be changed.
Width of comment margin should be adjustable, e.g. by use of mouse in the ruler at the top of the screen (just as text margin is adjustable here).

There are some bugs with very similar proposals like bug 38295, bug 73953 and bug 95958. So please chekc, if one of the bugs fits with your idea.
I have to agree, my enhancement suggestion is very similar to those of bug 73953 and bug 95958 (and but 97341). I am marking this as a duplicate.
