Adobe Acrobat 11.0.0 Comments Text Comments are locked by default and i cant unlock them to edit

I have a document open in adobe and i was editing. I was adding red circles and set them to lock automatically when i drew them. i was able to disable this and enable the locking on these shapes after this time.  I tried to add a text box and i would select the comment text box tool and it would automatically lock the text box as soon as i clicked on the document before i could put text in it. I would then try and unlock the test box by going to the comments list finding the text box, right clicking it and going to properties. the properties pane comes up but the Locked Check box is checked and greyed out.

What do i have to do to unlock the text boxes for editing? I am lost and frustrated here.
