Allow the user to adjust the width of the comment bar independent of other settings. 

Right now the comment bar is a fixed size in print layout, and can only be adjust in web layout by zooming in to make text larger.

I support this enhancement request.

Best regards. JBF
Comment 2 Preston Maness 2014-08-28 04:00:53 UTC
I too support this feature request. As it stands, collaboration quickly becomes cluttered as the length and number of comments on any given page grows.
Comment 3 Maris Nartiss 2017-08-29 08:30:36 UTC
This has been requested also in bug 97341 and as a part of bug 95958

For what it's worth, I'd like to endorse this enhancement too.  There is a "format comment" menu entry, but what it brings up is the ability to change the attributes of the characters used in comments.  I'd like to suggest adding an additional feature in the dialogue that comes up that allows you to set the width of the comment box.  (I happen to be using LO Version: on a Mac.)  Or it could be a part of the general preferences dialogues somewhere.

Screenshot of the comments bar

My laptop is Dell XPS 12 9q23. The screen size is 12'. The resolution is 1080p.

The version I am using is My problem is also related with a narrow width of the comment section. I have attached the screenshot.
