It would be great if the comment could be shown indefinitely.

To add on: It would be pretty neat if users can click on a comment, read through it and then click somewhere else in the PDF to exit the comment box.

I'd like to see the ability to click comments for a draggable comment box that I can close when I'm done with it; this is useful when a comment might be relevant to multiple areas in the text, but is not repeated at every instance.

Of course, with lightweightness being a concern, I'd be happy for just petebachant's suggestion of indefinitely-visible mouseover comments. As it stands, long comments (such as errata in rulebooks or remarks on academic work) are simply too difficult to read.

I love to see this feature too. It is annoying that the tip window is gone before the tip is read. This behavior is different from Adobe Reader too.

All, not the ideal answer but until there is a change in timer,
you can right click a comment and select the "Copy Comment" option then paste into another window i.e. a web site like this or the editor your using at the time or quickly start Notepad / WordPad to right click again and paste

+1, it's a pain to read long comments in Sumatra

Yes, the short 'popup windows for comments' exists even in the latest prerelease.
I think this is a tooltip window and their display time can be extended via an api command, TTM_SETDELAYTIME message.
It would be more functional to display an editable text box for copy and paste.
Whatever approach is taken will be a necessary improvement to read commented pdf's!

5000ms is the current default This value can be made smaller if desired , or simply click elsewhere.
5000 is the MAX allowed by Windows since a tip is a quick hint and a brief "comment" should be SHORT !
If commenters insist on abusing the term comment by including an essay then see my suggestion above.

"An infotip is a small pop-up window that concisely describes the object being pointed to"

@kjk since this feature works as intended at the max allowed by this method, I suggest it may require an alternative feature similar to the secondary (not currently exposed) dialog invoked by Ctrl+D twice
