Thanks for document with additional explanations
For throwing formatting away exist function Edit->Paste special (shortcut Ctrl-Shift-V), but in comment it not works correctly. If we select "Unformatted text", pasted  text is still formatted.

Steps to reproduce:
0. Open attachment in Writer
1. Select some text in bottom half of page
2. Insert->Comment
3. Ctrl-Shift-V, variant "Unformatted text"
Expected: in comment pasted ordinary text
Actually: in comment pasted one character wide text

Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.4 on Fedora 64 bit (Windows not tested)
Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproduced

In case of "Unformatted text" formatting for comment is taken from that place in text, where comment is placed. In this case it works bad, though formally correct.
Comment 5 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-10-04 19:27:55 UTC
Not an enhancement, that is a bug because paste special does not work as it should.

Tested with version (Build ID: 18b9cb260a5ec358f6a7b73362bbc306af0417b1) built at home under Ubuntu 14.04 x86-64.
Reproducible with the master too. Version: Build ID: 24fb87501ef9d5aa715d572de7eb5efe49a0d9c3

Summary made more clear (I hope).

Best regards. JBF

Workaround: menu Format > Clear Direct Formatting works in comments.

The bug is still present, and has the same appearance as described in Comment 4, if one follows the procedure described there.

The equivalent report for Calc is bug 112935.

Repro in 6.2+.

Seems like this was fixed already in 6.2. WFM. 
Please test.
If someone still reproduces, please explain.
