Sample pdf to show the issue
Tested using Windows 8.1 with LibreOffice Version: 126.96.36.199.alpha1+
Build ID: 0b03f7ed575838f90e6b1ebec3538a3a214f81fb
TinderBox: Win-x86@39, Branch:master, Time: 2014-04-30_01:30:46
How to reproduce:
* Open Writer
* make sure Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > Print 'comments' in margin is selected
* Type some words (doesn't matter how much)
* Select the words
* Insert > Comment (or CTRL+ALT+C)
* File > Export as PDF
Open created PDF.
Behavior: comments falls of document on the right side.
This is a regression in branch 4.3 due the fact this new feature worked earlier.
@Caolan: You might be interested in this bug. Looks like something broke the 'print/export comments in margin' feature *snif*.
Tested using openSuSE 13.1 (64-bit) with
LOdev Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha1+
Build ID: 81272fdb1e093d44e2e67eba65c79a490832f320
Pulled and build on 29 April 2014
I can confirm this bug. The arrow originates from the far right of the page, but the comment itself is still a note in the PDF.
Thanks for confirming Stephan!

> but the comment itself is still a note in the PDF.
Yes, you can inactivate that in File > Export as PDF... and deselect 'Export comments'. But that setting is of course not related to this bug :-).
I can reproduce the bug with same master as joren under Win 7 x64
Dashed ( _ _ _ ) line when pressing the Export PDF button on toolbar
Normal ( ______ ) line when using File -> Export PDF.
Is this too minor to file a bug?
I hate mapmodes

PDF looks fine now.
I notice that if I also check "export comments" in the PDF export dialog, the placing of the PDF note icon does not take into account that the page is scaled and centred. New bug report?

Indeed new bug report. Feel free to put me in CC, I can reproduce that behavior.
