When creating proof from PDF, import the comments from that PDF

If I have a PDF with comments in it, the comments are unable to be imported along with proof uploads. We often times receive files from our vendors or authors where they commented and we need to route the PDF and comments for internal review. It will be very helpful if the comments can be imported with the PDF during proof uploads.

Even if you're not a WF user, you still have a name and that should be pert of the comment. Mapping a comment author to a WF account is probably way too difficult given the amount of scenarios and exceptions it would require, but a simple list of "imported" comments would go a long way. Even if they we re all "owned" by a phantom account called "Imported" or something like that.

Yeah and if the PDF comments showed up as actual comments in the proof somehow then subsequent reviewers could reply to those comments which would add more value to the process
