Do you have an older style Adobe ID that is just a name? Or do you have your email address as your Adobe ID?
In either case, only the email address should change, the rest (screen name, history) will stay the same. If you have an old style ID I believe the name you sign in with will stay the same. If you have a newer one, then the sign in name will change to your new email address.
My email address was set up back before the Macromedia merger. I set up using email address and have a Nick name as you can see I use the nickname. because if I use the email address it switch to the old macromedia Account. Which I have been try to merge or get rid of.
My current email address which I will write so its not recognizable as an email address:
I am switching to :
Remove all the x's
The name I use is Phillip Jones
The forums just pick up your name/nickname/email address from your Adobe ID when you sign in. There is no control over any of those things from within the forums. If you are having trouble making the change you will need to go through Customer Service. I don't have access to your personal info at Adobe.com.
Okay I'l see if I loose 15 years of history so be it.
Just went and just a Blank screen does not pickup current information totally Blank
Last time I did that years ago it went to your account info and you could edit individual Items.
way the screen I went its totally Blank.
Next I just got out this went to adobe.com
and Tried. This time the email address showed. I attempted to change click saved. received site is down due to mantainence try again another time.
Okay went some how now I am signed in use my old profile. and can't get back to the one I've been using
Can't get back to my other profile. THis is Macromedia DreamWeaver
Philip, I am very sorry to see your having this terrifying issue.
I really hope that John will see and sort this soon.
I'd like to throttle the geniuses that created this system. I can't even get in to change my email address.
Thatshould have happened year ago was cancel all the dreamweaver account and make the Dreamweaver folks reapply or they should have been combined under the Adobe sign In
I need to switch my email address to comcast other wise when I switch off Kimbanet for good I no longer will be able to go to forums and they will not know I am elible for reduced update rate to Web Premium rate. @#$% Adobe!
I've asked the social media support team to review this thread and see what they can do.
I have two accounts. PjonesCET which is this Macromedia Acount I haven't used in years. It’s the one that should have been blown up. When Adobe took over Macromedia.
The other is listed under my email address: pjones1 at kimbanet dot com.
I need to change both to email address: pjonescet at comcast dot net.
when I type in the email address I get a notice:
Adobe ID and password do not match. Verify your information and try again.
Otherwise, try using the email address and password used when you created your Adobe ID.If the problem persists, check the FAQ for help.
When I do that and they send ID used they say its PJONESCET
but it automatically corrects to PjonesCET which is the Macromedia account.
See the problem was I never dreamed Adobe would take over Macromedia and I had same email address and minor differences in username for both. I set up two different psswords to differentiate. (If anything, at the time adobe was having troubles and I would have figured it would be the other way around MacroMedia Taking over Adobe.)
Tried a few minutes ago and had notice Too busy haven't gone back just yet.
Just go through with online chat.
They sent a reset several times. Nothing.
Supposedly I will an email in 3-4 days and I will have to give serial num of Web Premium and and Acrobat I recently purchased (last Year) so the can figure which account I need access to.
Guess I will be stuck for a week or more or end up creating a new account. I've Adobe Products, but I hate their registration system. (@#$%)
I was getting ready to blast adobe. Looks like someone figured out what to change.
whom ever that did put the PjonesCET in a Grave and Burry it! delete all references to it.
Well I'm at square one which was better than yesterday.
Now that I have my account back I still can't get into to it to change email address.
is there away a password reset can be done so I can get into it, to change my email Address.?
Tried to do a Password reset. Afraid to do it because with both accounts using same email address I don't know what will happen. can anyone addvise?
