My name is spelled wrong whenever I post omments in Adobe acrobat DC.

First, I tried changing it from 'Preferences > Identity', but it does not allow editing.

I tried second option, as follows:

1. Right click on comment

2. go to Properties

3.  go to General

4. Change the name in front of 'Author'

5. Check 'make properties default'

It changed the name for some (not all) of the comments in that particular document, but did not change it permanently.

Please help!

Go to Edit (or the Acrobat menu if you're on a Mac) - Preferences - Commenting and tick off the box next to "Always use Log-In Name for Author name". Now right-click a comment and select Properties. Go to the General tab and change the Author name. Make sure to also tick the box that says "Make Properties Default". Click OK, and any new comment you create (from that type) from now on will have your name as the Author by default.
