  1. When I click on a secure pdf and it opens in Safari, filling in any form field and then downloading will remove all security settings and field formatting. Date fields become text fields, font size becomes too large, file name appears instead of document title. If no form fields are clicked or filled in and it is immediately downloaded all the security settings and formatting remains intact as expected. Completing a fillable pdf in a browser and then downloading should not retain any values entered, nor should it remove the security settings of the document. This bug renders Adobe security…

  2. This bug is very repeatable. It affects Acrobat Pro on all M1 and M2 macs.

    If you turn ON "Enable native OS mode for optimal performance" (under Preferences > General > Application Statup), you can't read a password protected PDF. You are prompted to enter the password, but it behaves as if you have typed in an incorrect password.

    Turn it OFF and Acrobat Pro will accept passwords perfectly.

  3. I can't apply a digital signature on my desktop. Adobe forces me to route it electronically and applies a signature that does not have my certificate details such as time date stamp and reason for signing.

  4. Bug Report - unable to add password protection to my pdf files. Everytime I add a password and hit apply, the file is automatically renamed to a random series of letters and numbers, and I get a message box that says "Unable to save this file; cannot save to this file name."

  5. Please add a keyboard shortcut to digitally sign a document. Every day I have dozens of documents I need to apply a digital signature. I have to click Certificates then the Digitally Sign button. With a keyboard shortcut I could incorporate it into a Dragon Script, and then I think it would also be available to use in the Action Wizard.

  6. Please make an option for a handwritten/image signature to be mandatory in order for the client to sign.

    (Our clients with special needs really struggle to find the fountain pen to do a handwritten signature. So they only type their name (default setting), and the funding body doesn't pay us.)

  7. I have a PDF report that requires I click on a JavaScript button in (apparently) Acrobat Reader with Acrobat JavaScript enabled. In Acrobat Pro DC, I have that enabled, but the button does not work. And since I have Pro, I don't appear to be able to install the simple Reader.

  8. Here are some key steps on how to create an effective online retail strategy:

    Define your target audience. Who are you selling to? What are their needs and wants? Once you know who your target audience is, you can tailor your products, marketing, and branding to appeal to them.
    Choose the right products. What products will you sell in your store? Make sure to choose products that are in demand and that you can source at a competitive price.

  9. Adobe Acrobat will prompt users to sign-in to Adobe.com when we need to sign documents. As a best practice, complex passwords are encouraged in all our accounts. Adobe.com enforces this by asking for passwords which must have:

    1) Contains at least 8 characters
    2) Contains both lower (a-z) and upper case letters (A-Z)
    3) Contains at least one number (0-9) or a symbol
    4) Does not contain your name or email address
    5) Is not commonly used or a previous password

    As a result, many of us, as an enterprise or as individuals have adopted password managers such as browser…

  10. When working remote, we want to make sure that all employees have the 2FA enabled. To do this we think that the Admins on behalf of the Organization should be able to request or access a users list or a report that would fetch all the users that have 2-factor authentication enabled. This would help the Organization to maintain a level of security and would also help to reach out to those that have the 2FA disabled and assist them in enabling it.

  11. The now "old" Acrobat used to show a big lock icon on a locked PDF, above the page display column. VERY useful. Now with the new and "improved" interface, that icon is gone. How about bringing that back, JUST so one can tell at a glance the security status of a PDF. Thanks.

  14. PDF files cannot be protected from converting to other document types.Even after using Pro version,encrypting with password, others could convert our documents to word file using 3rd party sites.If using encrypting with certificate,conversion is not possible but others cannot view our document.What is the solution to secure our pdf files allowing others to view but not to print,edit or convert?

  16. The e-signature process is not user friendly for two main reasons:

    1) Once you have uploaded all signers and receivers and moved to indicate where to sign I have not found a way to go back to add a signer if I forgot one

    2) If you have partially completed your e-signature form and have to move to another task it is impossible to save your partial work. For a complex form, this is very inconvenient. This is made even more so as after a certain time of inactivity, the system deletes all changes.

    If these two aspects already have…

  17. Good Morning Adobe

    Firstly I would like to congratulate all the Adobe team due the great work that you’re doing with your software.

    My suggestion for a new feature or modification one is:
    Be able to sign a PDF with a digital certificate instead of with a handwritted signature on IOS, specifically IPhone and IPad.

    Why?
    Actually, in the EU states, the 100% legal signature is the one from a .pfx ; .p12 ; .cer and .crt government validated, it’s true that if we use the handwritted one it’s valid, but you have to proof that it’s not screenshooted or…

  18. We have a secured PDF that we created. It's password protected. I am trying to allow people to print a hard copy, but I don't want them to be able to choose 'Adobe PDF' or 'Microsoft Print to PDF' as the printer because that just circumvents the whole security process. How can I stop people from that? They can just "print" an unprotected version of the secured document. How about a way to allow physical printers only, say, printers with real device IDs or IP addresses? I don't know how the print dialog can distinguish between physical printers and "soft"…

  19. If you add a new certificate to the keychain access application (MacOS) and try to sign any PDF, you will success. However, after that, If you delete the certificate added before and try to sign same original document, you will get "The selected credentials for signing is invalid". The same certificate is still valid because I can authenticate on websites and also I sign documents with other tools (Autofirma)

    I think there are a few things here to improve:

    1. The error message: It would be great if the error says why the credential is invalid, and also a possible solution.
