  1. is this suspicious email REALLY FROM adobe?

    I just opened an email froma a which reads:"Hello Bob,

    Hope you are doing well! I work with Adobe and I am a Product Manager in the Document Cloud group (which includes Acrobat, Reader and much more). I have got your reference from the feedback you have left for Fill & Sign tool on our portal. It would be great if we could have a short call to discuss and understand your requirements in detail. I would also like to get your feedback on some of the new Fill & Sign capabilities we are exploring.
    Please let me know your…

    • Ability to save security settings in Adobe presets

      Our agency has several custom presets when saving pdfs from Illustrator. We would like to limit one client from altering our pdfs. We can apply the security setting, however they do not save in the preset.
      Please fix.

      • Restrict 'Save As'

        Currently, you can restrict print and save, but cannot restrict Save As. Would like to see that restriction added as well.
        Thanks for your consideration.

        • 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…

              • 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…

                  Hi Molly, Kevin,

                  Thanks for writing to us.

                  From what I understand, you require your PDF to be digitally signed again, after you have shared it after certifying and digitally signing by your signature? Can you please try these steps and see if this is what you require:

                  1. Open PDF in Acrobat DC. From Tools→ select ‘Prepare form’ app and click Start. Add (at least) 2 signature fields from top toolbar and save the document
                  2. Right click on the first signature field and select ‘Certify with visible signature’. In the Certify Document dialog that comes up, under ‘Permitted Actions After Certifying’, select ‘Form fill-in and digital signatures’
                  3. Now sign the document by adding your signature
                  4. Send the document to LINX now

                  Does this solve your problem? Please let us know.

                  Thanks,
                  -amboo

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                        Hi Linda,
                        Thanks for your feedback.

                        We need some more info to be able to fix the issue. What device are you using Acrobat on and which Acrobat version? Can you please post a screenshot of the security details dialog? Does pressing ENTER key not dismiss the dialog for you? Please let us know.

                        Thanks,
                        -Amboo

                      • 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.

                            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…

                              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.
