  1. 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!

  2. 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:

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. In our company we are using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Version 2018.009.20044. We want to set the iProtectedView registry setting to increase security of our system, however, we found out that the value name has a trailing whitespace: "iProtectedView ". Is this an Acrobat DC issue, that the value name was misspelled? Does it exist also without the whitespace in other versions?

  10. I would like to know why Hardware Rendering has been disabled when the option "Enable Protected Mode At Startup" is checked. Why is hardware rendering a security issue?

    To me this is a serious bug. You have crippled Adobe Acrobat for 3D delivery by forcing this on users.

    If you find a PDF file that has ANY javascript in it are you not only disabling the javascript but also disabling hardware rendering?

    I can kind of understand disabling javascript, although all that functionality should be able to be sandboxed. You, Adobe Developers, have full control over all the methods exposed…

  11. Hello- (Feature request) May I suggest the ability to add a custom email contact etc. signature? (The address & contact one, not the legal or digital one). Our user was trying to send PDFs, and while it opens her mail (Gmail) the signature part doesn't get added on. From what I gather, it is because the programming interface and user interface can't talk to each other, they are seperate streams, maybe? (see link to similar, below)

    Anyway, if they can't communicate, maybe add the possibility of a custom email address / contact one, in a future release?

    The closest I…

  13. Using DC Pro and my quick tool button for encryption does not work mostly, and is sporadic at best. i open the file select the security icon on the quick tools and if it allows me to use it, it is fine. most of the time,i will select the icon and the #2 selection and then nothing happens, no further pop up screen. I go back in to select the icon and the features are greyed out, forcing me to go the long way around to add the password.

  14. Rather than restricting the entire document with a password, for documents published to large audiences but only some need to see specific details, allow a blurred box to be included on sections of a document that can be removed if someone enters the password specifically in that section while reviewing the document.

    This would be page-specific security, not document level security. Useful on large reports that cover many areas that are distributed on different level of an organization.

  15. I have a pdf document, password protected, works fine. Password is fine, document opens on my desktop mac or any operating system. However, when I upload the document to our website: japanstudy.earlham.edu (Enrollment Procedures - 2018-19 Handbook), I receive this error message. Attached is the screenshot of the error. I cannot fix this, no matter if I change the password or try a variety of settings.

  20. It takes too many clicks to digitally sign forms with signature blocks: 1 click to active to signature box, 1 to select the digital ID, 1 to sign, 1 to save, and 1 to replace the file with the signed version. I frequently sign forms with 2-4 signature fields and this gets tedious. Two clicks would be plenty.
