  • Feature How to change my default name

    Hi all,

    could anyone help me to figure out how to change my own default name as it appears in the comments for example. Foxit sets the default name to be the usual windows login name which in my case is (almost) random set of characters. I'd prefer to have my own "Name Surname" that appears in author field and in comment notes. I found how to change the name for a single comment note, but unfortunately any new note will take again the default name. I wasn't able to find the relevant option in the "Preferences...".

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the post. To apply the default name, please try the followings:

    1. Create a note, change the author name.
    2. right click on the note, select "set current properties as default"

    Hope it helps!

      Thanks for the hint Christina. It works for the notes indeed, but unfortunately not for other types of comments like "Highlight Text", "Underline Text", "Strikeout Text", etc. Right clicking on these types of comments does not offer the possibility to "Set Current Properties as Default".

      Well, I hope this will be implemented in the next update.

        Yes, we are aware of this and hope it can be implemented in future.

              Hello, I am still having this problem (Foxit reader There is no "Author" section in the 'Commenting' section. There's an "Identity" section but it's not possible to edit it. Adding a new line doesn't change the name for existing comments, text edits, highlights, etc.

                Author name of highlight can be changed by selecting highlight tool and making a highlight and right click on it to change the Author name and also check "set current properties as default", this solution also works for other commenting tool, like underline, etc.
