In working with Adobe Acrobat Pro --editing PDFs, is it possible to change the color of lines and polygons that are under the comments section. I would like to have lines and polygons of 3 maybe 4 different colors on the thing that I am working on..  Is this possible?  How?

Seriously, though, if you have an issue tell us what it is, instead of just shouting at us. Then we might be able to help you solve it...

Thank you, David!! That worked perfectly. I needed something similar and found "Connected Lines" which fit my needs. You saved me a LOT of time!
