TIP 115: Using the Stamp Tools

The Stamp tools are like the old-fashioned ink stamps you apply to a document (such as Draft, Approved, or Confidential). Unlike ink stamps, some of the Acrobat stamps are dynamic in that they automatically add the time or date when you apply the stamp to the document—you can even create your own custom stamps. Stamps are a central part of an approval workflow, described in Chapter 15. The Stamp tools are located on the Commenting toolbar.

Who Are You?

The Identity Setup dialog doesn't allow you to change the log-in name used for stamps or other types of comments. To revise the name:

1.
Choose Edit > Preferences/ Acrobat > Preferences, and click Commenting in the column at the left of the Preferences dialog.

2.
Deselect the option Always use Log-in Name for Author name in the Making Comments section of the dialog. Click OK to close the preferences.

3.
Right-click/Control-click a comment on your document to open the shortcut menu and choose Properties to open the Properties dialog. Click the General tab, type a new name in the Author field, and click Close to dismiss the dialog.

4.
Open the shortcut menu again and choose Make Current Properties Default. Any subsequent stamps or other processes using the Identity Setup information now use the new author (login) name.
