Trados Studio 2019 comments in final PDFs?

Is there any way to get comments created inside SDL Trados Studio 2019 in the final PDFs? I noticed that they are present in the TransPDF xml file (see below for an example), but don’t seem to make it into the final documents. Comments are a very important part of my Studio workflow.

Hello.
This was not something we were aware off.
Can you send me (guy@iceni.com) an example XLIFF file.
What would you want to happen to the comments? Would you expect them to be attached to a specific paragraph?

Hi Guy,

Hmm, having just given this a bit more thought, I now realise that the TransPDF xlf files group the text into paragraphs, instead of segments like CAT tools. Well, linked to the relevant paragraph is better than nothing. The user can just indicate which sentence the comment refers to in their Studio comment.

I will email you an example file!
