  2. Acrobat DC more signatures and intials options

    Create and manage multiple signatures.
    Unfortunately there is only the function to add a signature once and an initial once.

    Unfortunately, only one signature and only one initial is not sufficient in this case.

  3. Change date format in Digital Signature

    It would be nice if you could change the date format in the Digital Signature to North American format (MM/DD/YYYY instead of YYYY.MM.DD)

  4. Password hint for Password protected PDF

    provide user to display
    message in password protected files, with password
    hint that can be given by the pdf creator - example to
    open password protected file, user provides hint - first
    4 charters of your name + year of birth
    so the user opening files know what combination has to
    be provided to open the file.

    it will save huge
    inconvenience as different credit card companies,
    bank's use varied combinations. it will save lot of hassle
    if these pdf will be provided with user configurable pop
    up box to as an option.

  5. Enhanced security breaks printing

    Several of our clients who use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC have complained of issues printing PDF's. After troubleshooting the issue we found the cause to be the Enhanced Security option located in Security (Enhanced) in the Preferences. If this option is enabled, disabling it allows our staff to print. We even came to a point where we had to enable it and then disable it to fix printing. This issue seems to have started several weeks ago.

    OS affected:
    Windows 10 Pro
    Windows 7 Pro

  6. [BUG] dgn.de eIDAS certificate not verifying correctly

    Certificates issued by dgn.de fail to verifiy even though they're eIDAS compliant. It seems that the certificate which is used to sign the OCSP response is not in the known list (which it should be as it is also an eIDAS certificate). For OCSP the certificate is used: dgnservice qOCSP 23:PN.
    The company has also discovered the issue.

  7. Modification Detection and Prevention Certificate Application Breaks PDFA/3-u Standard

    When applying a Modification Detection and Prevention certificate to a PDF/A-3u file Acrobat Pro DC adds DigestLocation, DigestMethod, and DigestValue entries to the signature references dictionary. That's not permitted by the PDF/A-3u standard. Thus it breaks conformance.

    Certifying PDFs in this way and complying with the PDF/A-3u standards both are part of our larger goal of long-term preservation.

  8. Allow for multiple change options to be selected in Password Security.

    Please break out all the current change options to allow more than one option be enabled under password protection. Really have a need to be able to have two of the four options (e.g., insert, delete, comment, fill and sign) available. What would be really nice is if we could select the Tools that are not available under password security and in any configuration. Your consideration would be so very appreciated!!!!

  9. Digital Signature Problems

    I've been using digital signatures in Adobe Acrobat for YEARS. Just got a new PC for work and digital signatures are not working properly or consistently. Documents that need signatures always need two. The second person (no matter who it is) always has problems and the experience changes each time. Sometimes, the certification toolbar won't come up. Sometimes the visible signature option is not available. Sometimes the software goes completely black. There is never any error message. The software just doesn't work for the second signature. Both brand new machines. Both have exactly the same software versions. Both use the…

  10. Adobe Protect Security Features are Disabled when opening with Chrome PDF Viewer

    When implementing all Adobe/Protect security features to prevent printing, copying, or editing a secured pdf, the PDF can still be edited, copied or printed when opened by the Chrome Document Previewer. With the print option reenabled in the previewer, you can print the secured document as a PDF and save to a file directory and upon opening the saved copy, all security policies have been removed. After discovering this, I researched to see if there was an oversight on my part and stumbled across an article on WikiHow titled, "How to Unlock a Secure PDF File" which outlines a similar…

  11. Extremely slow verification of digital signatures on MAC

    When Acrobat tries to verify digital signatures, it checks validity of all certificates included in the signed .pdf document. During this operation, it consults well-known Root CA authorities, locally trusted certificates, but also fetches all certificates from PKCS#11 Digital-ID token (if attached).

    Since PKCS#11 Digital-ID tokens might be very slow, fetching certificates from it multiple times during each signature verification takes excessive amounts of time. No caching seems to be used in Acrobat: if the .pdf document contains 6 certificates, all certificates from Digital-ID token are fetched 6 times and this process might take 2.5 minutes.

    This is a bug…

  12. Add Alt-Text to Digital Signatures (ADA / Web Accessibility Feature)

    Accessibility checkers (such as CommonLook) reject PDFs with visible digital signatures, presumably because they lack an Alt-Text feature like standard images have.

    We have new requirements to produce all documents for web postings as being accessible, which means we cannot use digital signatures until they become compliant with accessibility requirements.

    Please add Alt-Text capabilities or another means of making digital signatures accessibility-compliant. It would be nice if default Alt-Text could be set as part of the digital signature configuration (e.g., "Signature of John Smith".

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. How to CHANGE a permissions password that I never set in the 1st place

    I cannot edit PDF's because I need to enter a permission password to do so. However I never set one in the first place, only the one to sign in to my Adobe account.

  17. Support symmetric curve signature / PSS padding validation

    Currently the PDF signature routines of Acrobat fail when using certain certificates. As an SecSigner employee explains, this may be due to symmetric curve crypt algorithms or using PSS padding, cf. https://seccommerce.com/anforderungen-an-den-secsigner-im-rahmen-von-etsi/ (in German)

    E.g. current PDF files by amazon.de result in the following error (German Acrobat DC installation, no pending updates):

    Fehler bei Unterschriftsprüfung.

    Bei der Prüfung ist ein Fehler aufgetreten:

    Interner kryptografischer Bibliotheksfehler.
    Fehlercode: 0x2726

  18. 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.

    IF i am having a pdf docs which i need to sign on all the pages, i need to sign this each time on each page and save each tine after each signature, each time selection of tools is also a pain!! don't understand why each time after placing a certificate, pdf asking to save after signature/certificate are placed, it should give a final confirmation once everything is done. i can understand its for security but at least the person who is signing should have this option that he can sign on all docs and at the end save everything.…

  20. Crashes upon Save after inserting signature

    I am running Acrobat Pro 2020 version 2020.001.30018 (most current version per the software) on OS 11.0.1 Big Sur.

    I have had this problem numerous times with at least 5-6 different forms (for example, self-created from Word, IRS-generated forms, etc.) in the last month. I open a form and complete fields and save it - no problem. Then I insert a signature - no problem. BUT, when I then try to save again (after insertion of signature jpg, always the final step), the Adobe window goes blank and I see the infinite spinning wheel. The only option is to force…
