Import formatting from PDF comments
InDesign should apply what ever it recives from the PDF. The formating options for the comments are pretty limited – Bold, Italic, Underline, ...
If I accept a comment that has italic characters, the formatted text would be [italic].
If I accept a comment that has bold characters, the formatted text would be [bold].
If I accept a comment that has bold italic characters, the formatted text would be [bold italic].
If I am using a font that does not have an Italic weight (Maybe it uses Regualre Italic), the text would just recive the standart missing font warning (The pink highlight).

For a workaround please see my free Acrobat script and blog post here:
Sorry for blogging only in German. But when you download the script and open it with a text editor, you can read installation and usage instructions in German and English.
