Word 2010 commenting initials

A number of us are editing a document and inserting comment balloons.  When whoever is editing it and enters a comment, their initials appear to the left of the comment until they save the document.  Then all initials revert to "author" and start with an "A".  When the next person edits the document, the same thing happens.  We cannot tell who made what comment.  How do you stop this?

When I see a reference to the Office Button, I have to figure that any reference is to Office 2007….I believe that is the only release that has an Office Button? This link has a number of tips to try, for all versions from 2003 to 2010.

 

It looks like this question has come up on the Office forums as well. Try this fix:


Go to Office Button –>Word Options–>Trust Center–>Trust Center Settings–>Privacy Options and then make sure “Remove personal information from file properties on save” is not enabled. 


If it doesn’t work, there are other fixes noted in those forums.
