PDF Comment Loading in the Master Page
We have recently updated to 2020 version. In the previous version when I load PDF comments in InDesign they appear in the pages where they are suppose to appear. Now, in the 2020 version, they appear in the Master Page. Why is it like this?
Also may I suggest when copying text in the PDF Comments panel that the "Command+C" be activated as this is more instinctively than clicking the "Copy" button from the panel.
Fix for this issue is now available in the latest update of InDesign 2020 – that is, InDesign 15.0.1
In the Creative Cloud Desktop application, click on the Updates section on the left. You should be able to see the Update available for InDesign. Please update your InDesign application to this version to try out the fix.
Let us know in the comments section if you face any problem with the updation process.

Can't find "InDesign CC Prerelease" in the list. I only found this four:
1. InDesign Developers Prerelease
2. InDesign Family SDK Download Program
3. InDesign Prerelease
4. InDesign Server Trial Downloads Program
any workaround? this is very annoying! I found 50 corrections in the master page… I have to revert to comparing it in acrobat reader
We usually do multi page layout in InDesign and then submit to client subject for revision in PDF. Prior to this 2020 update, when I receive the PDF with comments/annotations I then load it to InDesign thru PDF Comments Panel. And all comments/annotations does appear in the InDesign layout in their proper pages. When we upgrade to 2020 some of the comments appeared on the master page (A-master page) as seen on the image. Why did they appear in the master page instead of their proper pages?

Yes, also having this problem after updating to Indesign 2020. When importing pdf comments, many are mapping to the master pages instead of the live page in the document where they should be located. We have not been able to figure out why this is happening with some of the comments. Have used the pdf comment import reliably on large book documents since it came out, and have never had this problem before. Please help! We have editors making hundreds of comments on book projects and having them mapping to the master pages will be a disaster!
