Bug Report: Selecting all filtered comments selects all comments, not just the filtered ones
When you filter comments and then try to select all of the filtered comments by clicking on the first comment and then shift clicking the last comment, all comments filtered out are also selected.
Please reference the attached screenshot where a blue comment box is not visible because the filter view is set to red. I then attempted to select just the red comments, but the blue comment was selected as well. The workaround to this bug is to shift click each item, but this is not a realistic option if you have lots of comments in a document.
It would also be nice if we could use the universal Ctrl + A to select all filtered comments when one filtered comment is selected.
Thanks for your consideration.

It would be nice to be able to select and delete filtered comments as well. When you filter and select all visible comments, the delete option is grayed out.

Just ran into this today.
Further info: original PDF had 102 comments. Filtered down to 28 comments. Shift-clicked from top to bottom, hit "Export selected". Go to import, and it has 90+ comments. It did pare down the number of comments a bit. But, my guess is it takes all comments from the page (1 page 5 comments 3 filtered out to have 2 displayed would still export the 5 comments) regardless of filtering settings. This is important for collaboration and even personal note-keeping. Please fix this.
