Displaying Object Comments

I'd like to display and print object COMMENTS on a map. I know how to display labels, but I don't know how to display comments in that fashion. If this feature is unavailable, is there a way to bulk-swap all comments for labels so that I can display the information I want in the labels?

    Brute-force solution: Export the tracks as gpx, open in a text editor, use Find/Replace to swap all instances of <name></name> with <desc></desc>, import the updated file back to Caltopo.

    That is what I would have responded with as well, sorry there isn't a cleaner solution.
