Open a PDF document in Power PDF. 2. Go to Option -> Comment -> Commenting 3. Disable "Always use Log-in Name for Author name"   4. Add a comment, or if there is an existing comment, right-click on the comment and select Properties.     5. Go to the Display Tab and add the Authors name you want to appear on the comments.     6. Close the dialog box. 7. Right Click on the comment again and select "Set Current Properties as Default".     From this point on, Power PDF will use the Author name you added in all new comments.
