Is there any way to get a Google Docs document to include its comments in the PDF file that it creates when you click the "print" button?

It doesn't appear possible at the moment;

Unfortunately you cannot print or export comments to PDF at this time

See answer here

What is suggested is exporting your comments as a .doc file (then converting to .pdf perhaps ?) which apparently retains the comments.

Hope this helps.

Yes did a test. Downloaded the Gdoc as Word and the comments are all there. – user17578 Feb 23 '12 at 9:10

Downloading as Word doc didn't work for me, but I was able to do it by downloading as a webpage and that worked perfectly.
