How do we change comment text color and fonts?

We use the tools, comments & markup, insert text box tool.
Is there better method to insert a lots of text into pdf file.

We are using Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional.
Our systems are Dell running Vista Ultimate 32 bits.

Select the commented text. Then press CTRL + 'E'

What I wanna know is, how did you figure that out? Is there a menu for it somewhere else? It's crazy that we'd have to come to a forum to find a command.

Works perfectly, Thank You. I also found I could drag the "Text Style" tool up to my tool bar and attach it. This keeps it visible and activates it as you select text. No need to press "Ctrl-E" every time.

Nope! Did not work. Highlighted the text, CTRL+E - a little box pops up to tell me who the author is (me). That is all. Nope! Did not work. Quite a screw up.

This does not work to change text color inside a commenting bubble. It only works to change the properties of the commenting bubble or line, etc itself. I think people are asking how to change the format of text within a comment bubble to a color or make it bold. I am using Acrobat XI.

Here's a pain-in-the-a** work around. Go into WordPad, type in the text you need, change all the formatting to whatever you need/desire, then copy this and paste in into the text box in Adobe PDF Reader (or I suppose whatever Adobe programm is giving you grief). Gets the results, takes a bit longer.
