can you still see the comments as metadata if you do it this way?
I believe this actually deletes the comments.

The other approach would be to hide them by unselecting them in the show markup menu:
Hiding all comments

Thank you. We had thought about this but was afraid it would still show up in the meta data.
You can use inspect document to check for this:
