I would need to know if it is possible to retrieve the comments written for a shared file (comment and position) and if it is possible to upload new comments or answers from a desktop application using CURL. Haven't found at the API list.
Definitely need programmatic access to comments: ability to retrieve so that reports can be generated (and this includes reports incorporating comments, and the text snippets they are commenting on, across multiple files), and ability to pull comments in from other sources.
Greg - any update on this after a year? The need to get comments (user generated content) when collaborating on a project is really important. And copy paste for anything over a few files is pretty inadequate.
We use the comments to gather information about changes needed in PDF files.
Having an API to take these comments out and put them into another system would help us alot ! I do this manually right now.
Anything new on this? Seems to be a relativly small change, for a start I could do with just getting comments?
