Every comment appears two times in the PDF, see screenshot.
The double comment icons are accurately placed one of top of the other.

Anybody seeing the same?

NWP 2.1.2, OS X 10.11.2 (15C50)

I never printed comments to PDF before, so I can’t say if this behavior only started with 10.11.2.

Thanks,

Tom

Edit 2015-12-13:

A. I noticed that the double comments only appear on the first page of the document. On the following pages each comment appears once.

B. Nisus’ comments show up with rather gigantic Notes icons in the PDF, overlapping the text in magnifications ≤150%:

When I simply move the icon and then press cmd-Z it changes to a smaller Bubble icon like this:

(I’ve noticed that comments created in Skim behave somehow similar in Acrobat. So I guess this is a problem of OS X’s PDF engine?)

C. When I double-click a Nisus-created comment icon in Acrobat the little yellow window with the comment text and author pops up, as expected. But in the little window the comment text is not initially visible. You first have to resize the little window to see the comment text. (This does not happen with Skim-created comments.)

As you theorized Nisus Writer Pro (NWP) does use the PDF generation capabilities provided by the system (OSX). Basically NWP provides the document content to OSX, along with any attached annotations like comments, and OSX actually synthesizes the final PDF data. Most of the oddities you described (eg: the finicky note icons) are a result of OSX's PDF generation.

This appears to be a new bug in OSX 10.11. The errant duplicate comments do not appear when the PDF is generated by Nisus Writer on OSX 10.10. I'll report it to Apple, thank you.

OK. Thank you for investigating and filing the bug report.
