    I cloned your form and did a test submission. The comments field shows fine in the submissions page and in the PDF. Here are the screenshots:

    If this is not what you mean, then you're probably referring to the other texts or elements like the headers, texts, and images. Please check this guide on how to show headers and text.

    Let us know if this is not what you need so we can further help you. Thank you.
