Ability to undock the comments list
Ability to undock the comments list and view it horizontally.
There are cases where the comments can be really long, and a vertically orientated list makes it really difficult to read, not to mention the comment may even take up the entire comments pane. Sharing the same screen space between bookmarks, the actual content, and the comments list makes everything less readable. Users should have the option to undock the list and view it anyway they like.
I have an external vertically tilted monitor. There used to be the option to unlock the comments pane. Been searching for that option forever, but it seems it's been removed. Why?
It would be a HUGE improvement if that option was brought back.
I downloaded the trial, but with the comments list permanently docked on the side, there's no way I'm going to purchase this version. Hope they change that. I do edits to documents all day, so I have my file and the pdf with comments open at the same time. Horizontal real estate is precious.The comments docked on the side causes me to have to reduce the size of both documents to accommodate the side comments. It was so much better when the comments were docked at the bottom.
It would be great to at least be able to resize the comment list to a smaller size. Right now, the minimum width is much too big for my small 13 inch laptop. It takes up three inches of the width of my screen space. The total width is 11.5 inches, which leaves not much for the actual document, especially if I'm looking at two-page spreads.
This feature was available in earlier releases. I can't consider a new version an actual "upgrade" when use features have been removed.

Undocking the panel would be a huge advantage.
