Using Scrivener Mac 3.1.3 on OSX High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G65)

I'm round-tripping some MS-Word docx to which I need to add comments. Importing is easy and works great.

What are best practices to compile/export to MS-Word and retain comments? I've tried a few appraoches, and the comments do not appear when the exported docx is opened in Word.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi.

The sample project attached compiles to .docx with comments included (I don't have Word, but the .docx opens in Pages with comments in place).

Does it work for you? Help you to identify what is or isn't working on your own project?

Or have I misunderstood?

Slàinte mhòr.
