  1. Create Wizard to Remove Password Security on multiple files that have a single password

    I have thousands of PDFs that have been password protected with the same password. I need to remove that security to add metadata to these files. There is no way that I can see to create an Action Wizard to batch process these files in Acrobat DC. Huge problem.

  2. Password Problem

    Acrobat Pro DC is adding password protection to Calif. Judicial Council forms, but not at first when form is downloaded. Can use the form initially ok, but in process of saving and re-opening (I think) Acrobat decides to add a password and then the form becomes uneditable since I don't know the password that Acrobat has created for the file. This is really unacceptable since I am a lawyer and I need to use those forms and I have to be able to edit after I initially create them.

  3. Display Security Policies in Alpha-Numeric Order when Creating Security Envelope

    The list of available security policies is not displayed in any recognizable order when creating a security envelope. This requires me to scroll through the entire list looking for the randomely-displayed policy. Strangely, when ecncrypting a single file, the "Manage Security Policies" option displays policies in Alpha-Numeric order. For persons using numerous policies each day to create envelopes, it would be a big improvement to be able to scroll quickly through a sorted list.

  4. Drawing Signature Form Box

    I need a simple box that can be added into a form which activates the drawing tool to enter a manual signature. If someone is filling out a form, they won't know at the signature point they have to jump to the tool menu and select the pen. For a user they are in the form, keep them in the form. Just a simple setting on a signature box to switch it to pen rather then Digital ID would be great.

  5. Bug - Encryption can be Removed from a PDF by Printing to PDF

    There is a bug in Acrobat Pro DC that allows people to print encrypted secure pdf files to pdf, and the new pdf that is produced has no security or encryption.

    After creating a pdf from a Word doc, I secure it with certificate or password security using a policy. Under Permissions for the policy, I chose Printing Allowed: High Resolution and Changes Allowed: None. I also uncheck enable text access for screen readers. I save the pdf and close it. I then reopen the pdf and check Document Properties, which state that printing in Allowed and everything else is…

  6. Unable to compare Secured PDF's - please add this ability ASAP

    I have two secured PDF's. I need to compare the two documents in Adobe Acrobat but I am unable to. I get a message (attached).

    Can you please add the ability to compare secured PDF's?

    This is an important feature that SHOULD be available in your product.

    I am currently using Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017.

    Thank you

  7. Disable the Sign In Prompt

    As it stands, after every 3 hours a sign in prompt appears asking if the user is still associated with the signed in account; our labs are public spaces, and we want to control the sign ins for our devices (keep them logged in to our Adobe Shared Device accounts), to stop any unwanted downloads, updates, or other factors that could clog machines, or prove to be security risks.

    Please could you implement a control setting that enables or disables sign in prompts, or remove the feature altogether, as it isn't necessary in most cases, and doesn't provide any extra…

  9. Hide 128-bit RC4 from pick lists

    With FIPS mode disabled, users have three selections of encryption levels:
    * Acrobat 6.0 and later compatibility (128-bit RC4)
    * Acrobat 7.0 and later compatibility (128-bit AES)
    * Acrobat X and later compatibility (256-bit AES)

    There is concern amongst our security community that 128-bit RC4 is not a very strong encryption method. We would like to be able to prevent users from choosing this option. It would be helpful if there were a security policy or registry setting that would allow us to hide this encryption selection from all menus.

  11. Remove loopholes that make it easy to remove password protection from PDFs.

    Without using the password, a secured PDF can be rendered unsecured easily with Acrobat Professional. Click on the Tools tab, click Edit, then allow Acrobat to save a copy of the file. Password protection is removed in the new file. I would consider this a serious bug that needs to be addressed promptly.
    Thank you

  12. Security of printed documents removed after every update

    Can you please find a way to retain security settings after an update of Acrobat. It is very annoying(and unsecure) after automatic updates to find that you have been printing unsecured documents because an update removed your previous security settings.

  13. Enhanced Security Settings > Privileged Locations

    I am converting PS files to fillable PDF forms with an Action Wizard workflow that would run without interruption but recently, I have been getting security prompts telling me that the documents are not safe and adding the path of the documents, folders, or fileshare root does not skip the prompt.

  14. Digital Signatures Validation

    Hi, by default Acrobat (Reader, Standard and Pro) try to validate digital signatures with NONCE extension enabled, if it fails it reverts to CRL download. Since NONCE extension is not mandatory (regardless of being a best practice and better and secure way of validation - example: preventing replay attacks), many suppliers for several reasons cannot use it. My suggestion to make the application aligned with RFC and able to handle with all digital certificate suppliers would be to also check OCSP without the NONCE extension enabled.

    1st - Check OCSP with NONCE extension enabled;
    -> new 2nd - check OCSP…

  15. Allow file protection with "Send for Review"

    Many people in my organization were excited to hear about the "Send for Review" feature and eager to try it out. However, it doesn't work with protected documents, and it's critically important that we restrict printing for proofs that we send out.

    We're not able to use this otherwise amazing feature without additional security options.

  16. Redaction Errors

    After marking a 'Text and Images' redaction to a page and repeating across pages. Once you press apply it says its done, i'm skipping the removal of hidden info. Once I press save its saying there are sections which have not yet had the redaction applied? I can continually press apply and nothing seems to change. Once I close the document and save without applying redactions the program will crash but the file will still have saved a file that has the redacted info gone but not the style of redaction mark that was originally selected, the correct redaction style…

  19. Text can still be copied after setting PDF Protect to Content Copying: Not Allowed.

    When I have PDF security set to Content Copying: Not Allowed in Acrobat DC but allow low-resolution printing, I can still copy text from the PDF in Apple Preview. If I also set printing to Not Allowed, then copying of text is disabled. It's a both or none situation. I need to allow low-resolution printing, but not allow content copying.
