Customize Comment Pane

The comments pane takes up WAY too much space. I would like the ability to customize what I see there.

Currently in the Comments pane, it display the:

-Author Name
-Type of Comment
-Text within the pop-up note
-Date and Time

Sometimes all of this information is useful, but most of the time, I don't need to see all that! It is a waste of screen space. I would like the ability to show to only those options which I need. In this case, I just want to see what is in the pop-up note, nothing more.

We can customize certain panels in InDesign (like the Links panel), and here in Acrobat it would help maximize screen space if we could hide those items which we don not need to see.

Compare the same set of comments in four different versions of Acrobat. Version 9 had a sub-level of collapsing, which hid the date, time, and type of comment. That feature was eliminated (or not developed) in later versions, and so now we have no choice but to always have the various items showing.

It takes up way too much space.
