    Re: Issue with commenting in Acrobat


      My problem is that Acrobat is simply using the username from my PC for all comments.  I need to manually change the name each and every time I make a comment.  It will not let me change it in the preferences, and even though I am correctly logged in through my CC panel, Acrobat simply refuses to change the name, or acknowledge the corrected login.


      Come on people.  This is simple stuff.  Surely a billion dollar software company can get something this simple to work correctly.

          Hi Wolfs:


          Which commenting tool are you using? The Sticky Note? If so,


          1. Uncheck Always use Log-in Name for Author name in Preferences > Commenting

          2. Add your first note.
          3. Right click the note > Properties > General
          4. Change the author name, click Make Properties Default

          Other commenting tools work the same way.
