  1. Allow hiding of the "To do" signature requests on the Recent screen.

    There does not appear to be a way to hide the new "To do" signature requests section at the top of the newly redesigned Recent window. Please allow us to hide this section as it's in the way and annoying.

    Thanks

  2. BUG - Too easy to unlock PDF created by Adobe Acrobat Pro

    A protected PDF can be easily unlocked by free online services. There is no protection for the company who buy this product because they are sensitive with the documents they create.
    If you think to a catalogue everyone of your competitor can copy your images and everything in few seconds.

  3. I am unable to delete a digital signature that I created that doesn't have the correct information

    REMOVE DIGITAL SIGNATURE - CAPABILITY

    I can't delete a digital signature that I created with incorrect information.

    This is a problem because it continues to pop up among the list of signatures to choose from and could cause people to make signature mistakes.

  6. Pasting passwords for digital signatures

    Last update requires user to press any keys in password field so pasting password is not working. This leads to using worse, shorter passwords so decreases security. Passwords for signatures is really not the place you should prevent pasting passwords.

  7. Bring the document security back, not so much password related, just simple make-it-difficult-to-edit secure.

    Bring the document security back, not password related, just simple make-it-difficult-to-edit secure. Acrobat is not a word processor.

    'Nuff said.

  8. Cloud Based Digital ID

    Cloud based digital IDs are getting common, convenience (applicable for use between different devices), cheaper and my desire feature - 2 factor OTP (One-Time Password). Why Acrobat Pro DC does not allows cloud based digital IDs? I don't feel there's a competition to Adobe Sign if this is included. More importantly, tag line for Acrobat is "complete PDF solution", it will be ridiculous to switch between 2 Adobe software just for signing with cloud based digital ID.

    P.S.: Took me quite a while to realize the difference between token/certificate digital ID and cloud based digital ID. My effort was wasted…

  9. certificate issue when attempting to sign document

    When user attempts to sign a pdf document, a box usually populates requesting id verification, but instead a black screen engulfs the entire screen and remains there for some time. Not able to sign document with certificates. An urgent response is greatly appreciated!

  10. I can delete digital signature from a protected document.

    Good day!

    I have signed some test pdf document with a digital signature.

    As you can see on a picture the document is totally protected from any modification.

    Now I go to a signature panel and rightclick my signature.

    There is a Clear Signature option, which do what it says - deletes my signature and make document editable again.

    I understand the concept of signature. It is not a method to protect your data, it only can guarantee that content was not altered.

    But never the less:

    1. Adobe states in its documentation that you need a private key to unsign…

  11. I can copy highlighted text with "Content Copying: Not Allowed"!

    I can copy text when it should not be possible. I just have to highlight the text. This is a big security issue and you should solve this.

  12. Certum Digital Identification CA SHA2

    Adobe AATL contains the certificate of Certum Digital Identification CA SHA2 (Serial: 66 DA EF 03 DB 84 61 91 6B 25 BA 83 FB 17 4E 13)

    However, due to an error in the policy constraint of the CA certificate, all certificates issued by this certificate is not valid.

    The current Certificate policies contain: 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.11
    However, all end entity certificates contain: (either) 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.11 | 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.12 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.13 | 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.14

    The three missed policy constraint created the error of
    "Invalid Policy Constraint"

    This error was initially reported by myself on May 24th, 2018 at Twitter direct message.

  13. Bug: Account name not updated with Adobe Account

    I have a CC account with my university.

    I have a preferred name which is the only name displayed on my Adobe account (online and in all CC Applications like PS, AI, etc.).

    But on Adobe DC, my former name is displayed somehow.
    Despite the name not appearing on any of my actual Adobe account information.

    Hello,

    When you say Adobe DC, I believe you mean Acrobat Pro DC?

    Try the following steps and let us know if that helps:
    1. Launch Acrobat.
    2. Click on your name at the top right corner. And click on Sign-out.
    3. Close Acrobat and re-launch, it should ask for re-login. Enter your Adobe-ID and check.

    Let us know if that helps.

  14. Shortcut for encrypting

    We are encrypting documents all the time.

    It would be amazing if there was a keyboard shortcut to encrypt a document (with password option).

    Fingerprint log in option is more used nowadays, May I open all my files with my fingerprint? It can be an integration between Adobe and Windows Hello. I could add several passwords for all the files but the unique - and swiftest - password could be my fingerprint.

  15. Ink signature without digital ID

    In Adobe XI we were able to sign things without creating an account and a digital ID. It just brought up a box that could be drawn in, aka the Ink Signature.

    Adobe DC needs a way to use the Ink Signature without creating an account every time. Our workflow demands that hundreds of people sign documents, and every person who comes in should not have to create an account to sign a simple form.

  18. DMARC Alignment

    Send & Track emails do not have aligned RFC5321.MailFrom and RFC5322.From fields, thus fail DMARC checking as per acrobat.com policy of "p=reject", which instructs receiving MTAs to reject or bounce misaligned messages.

    Proof attached.

    Please either:
    A) allow users to change the RFC5322.From field in the product UI
    B) or, create a separate subdomain for Send & Track messages with DMARC policy of "p=none"

    This will ensure better deliverability.

  19. Easily turn off the ability to upload file(s) to Adobe cloud services…

    The automatic uploading, translating and downloading of PDF files in Adobe Acrobat DC from the user’s machine to Adobe’s cloud service needs to be turned off. On first use, a pop-up needs to ask the user if they would like this feature, and to use it moving forward if they’d like. Using the Acrobat Customization Wizard DC to turn this feature off is too time consuming and confusing. The idea that Adobe thinks the user is ok with uploading, translating and downloading sensitive PDF files from their machine to the Adobe cloud is dangerous to any company’s security.
