If we show the review details to authors, is the field "Contribution of the Submission" also shown to the authors?

Is it possible to make the "Comments for the Authors" visible to the authors, while hiding reviewers’ comments on the "Contribution of the Submission"?

You can display the fields "Contribution of the Submission" and "Comments for the Authors" independently from each other.

You can disable the field "Contribution of the Submission"...
