I have a user who uses the Approved dymanic stamp. She had some trouble with her install so we uninstalled and reinstalled it. Since then, when she uses the Approved stamp, it puts someone else's name on it. This other user as never used this particular machine and we can't get rid of it. If someone else does sign into the machine, the stamp is correct. Others have found an 'Edit Identity' button, but when I right-click on the stamp, I don't have that. Ideas? Thanks!
If you're able to change the name on one of the comments, you can then select the "Make Properties Default" checkbox. You may need to deselect the following first: Edit > Preferences > Commenting > Always use Log-in Name for Author name
No, this doesn’t work. One thing I forgot to add yesterday, if someone else signs into the Banking machine, it’s all fine. It’s something between these 2 users. Thanks.
Sorry about my earlier reply, I misread your question and was thinking about something else.
You'll likely clear this up by setting the following preference to what you want to use: Edit > Preferences > Identity > Name
If this doesn't work, post again.
No, this doesn’t work, either. When we change the Identity on one machine, it changes it on both – that’s my whole issue. If I post again, I have to start all over with support!
By post again, I just meant reply in this thread like you just did.
and then press Ctrl + Enter when the cursor is on that line, what does it show?
Then do the same for this line of code:
And finally, this one:
The name that you're seeing is one of these, but which one?
Sorry! It’s a little frustrating! Can you tell me where the Identity information comes from? Because when I re-installed it, it didn’t enter anything there and it’s not my information.
The identity information is set in the user preference I mentioned earlier. The user is normally prompted for it the first time they place a stamp, but it can always be changed in the identity preference settings.
So if you’re not prompted for it, where does it come from? Because the user wasn’t prompted for it the first time she tried to use a stamp. Is there a config file somewhere locally I can change?
As I mentioned earlier, it comes from: Edit > Preferences > Identity
Have you performed the tests I suggested?
Do you have any other ideas on this? I’ve also tried uninstalling and downloading fresh install files from the Adobe website.
If you perform the tests I suggested and report the results, it would be helpful.
Sorry, I thought I’d responded. I don’t get anything by pressing CTL-J. Nor could I find anything online as to another path to get to the scripting window.
Does the machine in question have Reader, Acrobat Pro, or Acrobat Standard installed?
After placing a stamp, are you able to right-click it and select Properties and then select the General tab? If so, try changing the Author name to what you want and then select the "Make Properties Default" check box.
When I do this, the author’s name is correct for the user who’s signed in but the wrong name still appears on the Stamp. Would it be possible for you, me, and the user to find a time where you can WebEx in and look at this?
Sorry, I'm not going to do that. And the change I described will only affect new comments, not pre-existing ones.
If the stamp is set up to use the Login Name value from the Identity preferences then solution is to either edit the stamp's code or login under a new Windows account, with the correct user-name.
I can edit it all day long. I can change it for the user but it also changes it for a second user who uses a different machine.
If you edit the code to use the Name property instead of the Login Name then each user could adjust it to include their own name and you won't need to have multiple versions of the same stamp.
I’ve tried all of that. When User 1 changes her information, it changes it on both machines. If User 2 changes it back, it also changes it on both machines. The only thing they have in common is they’re both licensed under the same Adobe ID.
That's very very strange. I can't help you further without seeing this stamp, though.
It’s just the Dymanic out of the box ‘Approved’ stamp. What do you need to see and I’ll screen shot it all.
What I don't get is how changing the value on one computer can affect the other one. It's pretty much impossible...
Yeah, send screenshots of what you're talking about, exactly.
