Hi

I've made a bunch of comments. I know how to change the name for one. How do I change the name for all?

Select all of them in the Comments pane. Right click and choose Properties. Then change the author name to whatever you want.

How do you "select all" of the comments in the comments panel? I can't figure this out.

Yeah, there's no way to "select all" - you have to go through one by one it seems

Hi @jincyk14739448 @Sandra_Mann 

 

If you are willing to select multiple comments from the Comment list (shown at the Comment Pane right-hand side of the screen), then try this:

  1. Press Shift + Down-Arrow OR Ctrl+ Mouse click
  2. Once selected multiple comments, Right click on the selected comments. You'll see the option to Delete, Properties, Add checkmarks, etc.  This will be applied to all the selected comments at once.

3. If you have selected any option by mistake, for example, delete all comments in one go, then use Ctrl+Z to undo the action. 

 

Hope this helps!

 

Thanks,

Akanchha

I'm reading through all these replies and wondering - did something change in Acrobat? When I right-click on a comment my only options are these ones attached. I do not have a "properties" option on any of the comments. I'd like to change "Guest 1" to the name of the person commenting. There no longer seems to be a way to do this? (There should be?!)
