Change Comment’s Review Status in PDF Documents

By Jennifer Smith, Christopher Smith, Fred Gerantabee

One of the most powerful features of Adobe Acrobat Creative Suite 5 commenting is the ability to easily manage and share comments and annotations among reviewers.

Acrobat CS5 makes it easy to include users of the free Adobe Reader in a review process. To include Adobe Reader users in a review, choose Comments→Enable for Commenting in Adobe Reader. After saving the file, you can share it with users of Adobe Reader, who can then use commenting and markup tools and save their comments into the file.

Acrobat makes it easy to indicate whether a comment has been reviewed, accepted, or has additional comments attached to it.

To change the status of a comment, follow these steps:

  1. Choose Comments→Show Comments List to see the entire list of comments and the status of each one.

    You can also click the Comments tab located on the bottom left side of the screen to display the comments.

  2. In the Comments List, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac) a comment and choose Set Status→Review from the contextual menu.

  3. Select Accepted, Rejected, Cancelled, or Completed, depending on what’s appropriate to your situation.

    The comment you modified appears in the list, showing the new status you assigned to it.
