Topic: Show/Hide by State Model

A problem has been occurring when users try to use the Acrobat Show/Hide comments feature in the Comments bar which allows comments to be shown/hidden based on their state model.
When one person sets a series of states and uses Show/Hide then everything works as expected. For example if he wants to show only the comments that have the state "Fruit" set to the value of "Apple" then only those comments will show up in the window with the rest of the comments being hidden until another filter query is made.
However when 2 or more people use the collaboration capabilities of Acrobat to set the status for comments, a different behavior will sometimes occur. Trying to use the Show/Hide feature results in ALL the comments becoming hidden regardless of their actual states.
I haven't found anything in the Acrobat documentation on how to solve this problem or if it can even be solved at all. Any help?
