Default doesn't open office support (Word's) inline comments?

Given I didn't receive anything useful to a similar enquiry before
(below) but yet think that I can't be the only person doing this I'll
try one more time (or maybe I should put it in as a 'bug'/RFE?):

Essentially, MS Word has comments -- can add text with another pane (cf
footnotes) appearing listing all the added comments.

Isn't this feature compatible with OpenOffice Writer?? I can't get it to
work
That is (a) there is no sep window pane at the bottom with the notes
(they do seem to appear in a hovering box if the mouse is held *exactly*
over the invisible note - but that's not very usable); (b) there seems
to be no way to edit said notes; (c) there seems to be no way to add
notes from OpenOffice (the 'comments' aren't the same thing IMHO).

Bestest of thanks, Michael

You probably would get more answers if you asked on OOo forums.
