  1. digital signatures

    Acrobat DC Pro hides the 'digital signature' field unless you follow a very convoluted series of steps to find it. Recommend ALWAYS having the digital signature option available. Also, recommend disambiguating between 'signature' 'initial' and 'digital signature' fields. Conceptually very similar. Functionally very different.

    • Protected PDF

      Currently, if you PDF a document and added the current Protection features in order to stop it from being converted back to Word. You can actually upload it to many PDF to Word converters on the internet and it will convert the PDF document back to Word without asking for the password. So a better security feature is needed. Especially for company sensitive documents that I want to PDF, protect and stop anyone from converting back to word.

      • make duplicate digital signature fields

        Whenever a digital signature field is added, we do not get the option to duplicate it. This would be very helpful in cases where same person has to sign on multiple pages in a document.
        At present, it is giving the option to duplicate across pages, however, it is not working nor it is giving any error message.
        Please include this feature in Acrobat, or grey out the duplicate across pages option.

          • cannot unsecure a protected pdf

            1. Open a protected document with the correct password.
            2. Try to unsecure the document in "Document Properties" -> "Security", choose "no security"
            3. A pop-up asking password shows up, Enter the same correct password as used to open the document.
            4. "The password is incorrect". Cannot unsecure the document.

            • Bypassed Password

              This is a bug report.
              I used Adobe Pro DC to encrypt documents for emailing to outside agencies among other things. Today, I discovered after sending a document to a co-worker for review, the default PDF reader on Windows allows access without the password required... simply by hitting the cancel options. I spoke with the Adobe Pro help line for an hour today and they asked me to write this report. The application used is called Windows reader, when opened you cannot print or edit but you can view the document without any obstacles, I was also able to take…

              • Digital Signature from Page Template

                When a page is spawned from a page template that contains a digital signature, the digital signature field does not retain the set "signed" action. (I.E. mark field as read only: all fields), or a script to be executed.

                • signature appearance

                  Since last update of Adobe Acrobat Std/Pro, our engineers are not able to sign drawings cause now a predifined rectangle appears which is way too large. People have to sign at the right side of the drawings (DIN A0) with a very small rectangle. You have now to place the new predefined rectangle where top left corner have to fit with top left corner of drawing field. Therefor, you have to zoom out the document to be able to place the rectangle. That way, it's hard to see if you sign the right field at the drawing. Signing hundreds of…

                      • Certified Sigs Should Allow Timestamping by Judicial Court E-Filing Systems

                        Our county's superior court system requires that we e-file all documents into the court; upon filing a document with the system ("LINX"), LINX timestamps it.

                        This doesn't work with a certified e-signed document, because Adobe locks the document from future editing. If I try to e-file a certified copy, LINX immediately rejects the file, because of course LINX can't timestamp it.

                        I'm forced to print out the file, physically scan it again, and e-file the document that I had e-signed in the first place! Am I missing a checkbox somewhere that I can check, to force Adobe to allow editing…

                        • Apply Security Settings to Multiple Files

                          You should be apply to apply security settings, i.e. password protect multiple files at once just like you can add a header/footer to multiple files at once.

                          • DocHub Security Patch

                            It would be good to have some sort of solution/ patch/ workaround/ update to prevent Google DocHub from being able to edit locked forms. I've noticed that by dropping an adobe pdf into DocHub does a few things:
                            1. Even if document password protected to prevent editing it is easily editable and doesnt seem to honor those security settings
                            2. When document is locked after signing DocHub allows all the previously fillable fields to be edited while still retaining the original signature
                            3. even if a fillable form is converted to flattened copy, once dropped into DocHub all the fillable…
