  1. pdf signature fields for Adobe Sign

    A suggestion for Adobe. It would be so great if pdf signature field properties could be configured to include the signatory's email address, or could be scripted to pull an email address entered in a text field in the same form, so that when the form is uploaded to Adobe Sign it already has signature fields with email addresses, and is ready to send for signatures. without having to type in email addresses and place signature fields. That would be a terrific option.

  5. Feature request Redact - please make it possible to use multiple replacement texts/images

    Redact - please make it possible to use multiple replacement texts or images

    I want to use a few of different replacement texts while redacting one document.
    I would be very usefull when each replacement text has an own icon in the tool bar. Each replacement text has an other color on the screen, before the redactions are applied.

    Now I have to save the document each time, when I need to change the replacement text for redaction.

  6. Need Password Recovery for Adobe DC

    Adobe DC (pdf editor) need a password recovery method. I created an important and complex document many years ago and now need to edit it because some of the media links have changed. I had given it a password because I didn't know what I was doing, and now need to change the links, but I have long ago forgotten the password.

  7. BUG: Security policies with password included fail to save if password contains a space

    I'm trying to create a fillable-form for a prescription that will create a password-protected file on save (for at least the illusion of security) and I've been unable to do it for days now:

    Whenever I tried to create a security policy, no matter what combination of options I chose... I'd get to the review step, click finish and the whole security policies option window would close completely.

    Eventually I decided to try not including a password, and it saved fine and took me back to the list of security policies, where I could now see my new entry.

    This…

  8. Automatic Certificates Creation

    Good afternoon. I need to create hundreds of 1 page certificates. In MS Word I use the Mail Merge to include the participants names and signature. I convert all of them into a pdf file. With Adobe Acrobat Pro, I bookmark every certificate with the participants name. Before the name, I need to write "Certificate" so the name of each pdf would be for example "Certificate Joe Doe". I do this manually in the bookmark part. Then, in the Organize Pages part, I split them by Top Level Bookmarks. In Output Options, I wish there would be an…

  9. Request signature with password protect

    I would like to be able to send Request Signature documents from inside of Adobe that are password protected. It seems silly that we can password protect documents from inside of adobe for viewing but can't select a recipient to send the that same documents for them to view, sign, and return, all while being password protected. I guess if security is of the utmost concern then Adobe is not the program you should select to send secure documents. I hope they fix this function soon.

  11. Convert highlights to redaction

    In order to facilitate the creation of faux-redacted documents for internal stakeholders (i.e., it looks like the redacted document that we will send out, but it contains the redacted information for future reference), highlights should be easily convertible to redactions.

    - possibility to edit the size of the date,
    - possibility to change the format to dd/mm/yyyy
    - possibility to change the separators to dd.mm.yyyy

  13. BUG: Acrobat DC misreported Invalid Signature

    I have encountered several cases of PDF documents in the past few years. When I signed the first signature, Acrobat DC verified the signature correctly, but when I added the second signature (even though the second signature was signed with Acrobat DC) , Acrobat DC will report that the previous signature is invalid, but I didn’t actually make any changes. Other PDF software (Acrobat 9.0 Pro/iText/Foxit) can verify these signatures correctly. I don't understand what causes the Acrobat DC verification to fail?

    In addition, I also encountered a "1 miscellaneous change(s)" problem in Case1.pdf

    Use the latest Windows 10 and…

  15. AATL Trust List not updated

    Acrobat is not updating the AATL trust list automatically or even asking when a document that is signed is opened.

    There is a checkbox under Preferences > General > Trust Manager > The Automatic Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL) updates. Load trusted certificates from an Adobe AATL Server is checked. This is the default when you install acrobat. It however does not update the list. If you uncheck the box, close Acrobat, then open Acrobat check and reclose and open, it works.

    Most users won't know to go here and all documents end up looking like they are not valid.

  16. aadhar based verification for esign

    Hello Team Adobe

    We would appreciate if you can integrate Aadhar based verification process before the document is esigned.
    This process will help many companies streamline their requirement with just adobe solution.
    We are looking for a solution on immediate basis and if you can integrate it using your API on Teams platform that would be really great.

    regards
    Hetal

  17. Decryption of large documents is realy slow.

    Bug/Problem:

    When opening Large encrypted documents ( eg. 15.000 pages ) Acrobat is really slow compared to other PDF-readers. ( Soda/Foxit )
    (large documents eg. 50.000 pages dosen't open at all.)

    i have attached a realy simple large PDF document encrypted and signed - to illustrate the problem. ( opening time on my PC > 10 minutes - Other readers opens the file in < 30 Sec )

    PASSWORD => owner

    Version:
    Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (2021.005.20060
    ( Same issue found in PRO reader. )

  20. 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…
