List comments/annotations from PDF

On Windows, Adobe Reader can export and view a list of comments through the Comment tab on the right side.

On Linux, Evince panel on the left has a drop-down annotations menu that lists comments. Press F9 key if you don’t see the left-hand panel.

Not working for me

I have also read that you can extract all comments and annotations from a PDF file by

apt install texlive-latex-extra

pdfannotextractor --install

pdfannotextractor in.pdf

This yields a .pax file without plain text, that it was not clear how to read.
