LO 5.X doesn't generate comment boxes in PDF when "in margins" is checked (see attachment). LO 4.X does print them.

I can confirm that not-printing of comments with the LO version on Linux (All) system. That behaviour is seen in print preview as well as in PDF-export. 

If i try to print via virtual PDF-printer (cups-pdf), LO seems not to send data to the printer because there is no progress in print spool. Print size stays at 0 KByte (wait > 5 mins). Maybe this is useful for finding root cause of this bug.

In which version of LibreOffice 4.x are they printed ? I have tried 4.1.x to 4.4.x and only ever get a big ugly coloured box that displays the comment when you double click on it, but no margin comment.

If this worked previously, please provide the exact version so we can cross check.

Comment boxes print to PDF on LO (see attachment, above) on OS/X 10.9.5.
