Yes, the current version of Adobe Reader can now place sticky notes and highlights on any unsecured PDF file - though to use the full range of markup tools (drawing, text corrections, etc.) the file must have been rights-extended using a copy of Acrobat Pro.
The identity used on comments is your operating system login name by default. You can change it via the Reader menu, first open the Preferences > Commenting panel and turn off "Always use Log-in name..." then enter your name in the preferences > Identity panel.
Thanks for the quick response. But the "Always use login name" box was not checked when I followed your suggestion.
Ah, but since the "always use login name" box was not checked, I have discovered that I can go to the annotation balloons and change the name to "hal". That seems to be satisfactory work-around. Thanks.
