Nisus Writer Pro enables you to add comments to your document. When you share these documents with others, they can read your comments and/or add their own. Comments can be shown whenever you are in Draft View, Page View or Full Screen view but not in Style Sheet view.

You can print your documents with the comments visible so you can read all the comments on paper (or in a PDF version of your file). You can export your comments to a new document. With this capability you can maintain a timely journal then collect your thoughts in a new document for use elsewhere.

Some features of Comments apply equally as well to the use of Tracked Changes (explained in the section: “Track Changes“ beginning on page 513). When discussing them both, the terms ”annotations” and/or “ancillary content” are used.
