Can't sign fillable forms in Acrobat DC Pro
Acrobat Pro XI allowed signing fillable forms. Now when i try to sign one after others have signed in their blocks, it won't let me.
Please fix this. It is a major hamper to my work.
Adobe DC pro - when I try and request signatures from other people I am told " you have been logged out. An unexpected error occurred, please sign out and sign back in again." I have tried this, and I have tried restarting my machine and logging into everything from scratch. Nothing works. This means I am now unable to complete my work.
I can't sign into non filers account.

I get a pop up screen when I try to apply the digital signature i get a pop up box stating that Acrobat has encountered an unexpected error.
I initially tried with the document open online
Then saved a copy to my PC's file with same results
Never had this problem before and you faithfully take my money every month
I'd attach the file but it is my corporate tax filing
Just installed the latest version of Abode Acrobat DC and it is not letting me sign my form. I don't know what to do now
This new version SUCKS. I wish I had never installed it.
Chris, I later learned from Adobe that the function I needed to use was in the "Certificates" section of Adobe DC, not in the fill & sign. There you can drag and drop a signature block. Why they chose to put it in certificates and not Fill and sign, I don't know.
I am having this same Issue and I am unable to understand how to fix the issue.

Dear User, The Supervisors Signature field on page 1 is actually a text field and not a signature field.
Where as the Supervisors Signature field on page 2 is actually a signature field.(so right clicking on that automatically invokes the signing workflow)
If you want to sign the field on Page 1 , please select the Certificates Tool from the Tools menu and,click "Digitally Sign" ,draw a rectangle on the text field.And follow the steps mentioned in the comment below.
I have a digital ID set up in Adobe Acrobat DC. Whenever I use the fill and sign tool, it does not pull up the digital id. A;ll the form say "You have opened a fillable PDF form. This form does not let you drag and drop saved information." I thought that I could drag and drop the digital id anywhere on a pdf form, regardless of whether it had a created designed signature block when the form was created or not.

Thank you for posting the issue. We have received the file you were trying to sign on.
Firstly, are you trying to sign the form with a digital signature.?
In that case, please click on the Supervisor's Signature form field.It should open up a window “Sign with a Digital Id” in case you have a list of digital ids already added to Acrobat. In case you do not have any digital ids added, it would throw, “Digital Id Configuration Required” dialog. Select “Configure a Digital Id” and then “Use Digital id from a file” [if you have a pfx file saved to your local machine] or “Create a new Digital Id” [when you want to create a a new pfx file]. Once you have added, or created a new digital id, it shows up in the list of digital ids to sign with. Please select the id ,Continue, and “Sign As “ screen opens where you may have to enter the password for the digital id . Click on “Sign” . This would place the signature on the form field
