use markers to make edit notes

Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way, but I like using markers to create time notes for feedback to my editor working on a Premier system. I usually just take a screengrab of where my comments line up with a timecode of where the marker is in the timeline. It works great unless I write more than 6 can't make that column wide enough to display everything I've written. It's surprisingly limiting. Is there a way to get that data out another way?

It requires an investment, but the industry is generally moving to on-line stored notes systems for stuff like this. The class of the pack is
It gives you the ability to attach notes directly to frames in a shared cloud experience and works within both FCP X and Premiere.

If you don't want something that sophisticated, you can also just do the traditional thing and pop a timecode generator atop your timeline as a kinda/sorta adjustment layer - then take notes in a word processor linked to those.

It's the only way I know of to exchange notes linked to video between two editors working on totally different software platforms.

I'm not sure what exactly you mean or want to do.
What are the screenshots for?
