GET RID OF 'WHO NEEDS TO SIGN FIRST' SCREEN
I am not sure why there is now a screen after I press the fill & sign button that asks who needs to fill and sign first, but it is just 1 more step, one more click I have to make before signing each document I open - very inconvenient. This extra step also seems to slow down the time it takes adobe to open and prepare my document for any sort of editing.
Fill and Sign and Adobe Sign (formerly known as Send for Signature) are now consolidated into a single Sign tool where you can either fill & sign a document or get a document signed from others. It includes a simplified experience that asks you who needs to fill and sign first: you or others and then walks you through the steps to complete the task. It’s the one place for all your form filling and signature needs. For detailed information, you may refer to the article What’s new in Adobe Acrobat DC
This is designed behavior, I will check with the team and will share an update soon.
Thanks for your time and patience on this.
Seems like a lot of people agree this screen should be something we can disable. Huge loss in productivity around the world due to extra clicks (designed to get people to use the adobe cloud, but in this instance it is most often not needed and a net negative)
We all know this is "designed" behavior. Stop it already. Or please tell us how we can move backward in the product cycle by the appropriate file version. This is such a time consuming process now.
Fill & Sign and Send for Signature as part of Adobe "Send for Signatures" needs to be separated. I open hundreds of PDF files per day and the fact that I cannot go directly into the fill and sign tool to type notes quickly onto parts of my file without having a separate step to choose between fill and sign and who needs to sign, is time-consuming and irritating. Please separate these tools again or have a preference for choosing one or the other as a default.

Create a preference if you want this menu to pop-up or not. This has added a lot of time with editing the multitude of documents I have to process on a daily basis. It really sucks and wastes so much time.

Remove this extra step: "Who needs to fill and sign first?", please!
I have the same problem as with the "Who needs to sign first" screen. This new screen that I have to click through every day is a waste of time adding extra clicks for each document and I have many document to go through everyday. PLEASE REMOVE THIS "FEATURE"
This feature is already extremely annoying and I've only had it for a few days. This should be something folks can opt out of.

I agree, please make it go away.

I also agree with Jennifer and Dave. This has added steps and has slowed down signing of pages. When you are required to sign numerous documents this adds a lot of clicks and time to the day, never mind frustration. Being able to disable this feature would be great!

I agree with Jennifer, and having the option to disable this screen would be helpful. This screen is just an unnecessary step that stands in the way of simply applying a signature to a document quickly. Our workflows here require a lot of this, and having to do this for each document is quite a pain for us.
