  1. allow custom signature reasons

    The reasons for signature list seems to be fixed. It would be nice to be able to add custom reasons to the list without editing the registry.

  2. Allow to print files in protected (i.e. sandboxed) mode

    Why do I have to unlock PDF files from the Internet in order to print their content? That doesn't make sense.

    When I print a document, I do not confirm the file to be save. Instead, I'm just converting the PDF file to an even saver format: the printed page.

  5. Digital cert signature

    Good Morning Adobe

    Firstly I would like to congratulate all the Adobe team due the great work that you’re doing with your software.

    My suggestion for a new feature or modification one is:
    Be able to sign a PDF with a digital certificate instead of with a handwritted signature on IOS, specifically IPhone and IPad.

    Why?
    Actually, in the EU states, the 100% legal signature is the one from a .pfx ; .p12 ; .cer and .crt government validated, it’s true that if we use the handwritted one it’s valid, but you have to proof that it’s not screenshooted or…

  6. Prevent saving the signature on Digital Certificate automatically every time.

    We trying to use a digital signature field to centralize the signature into a particular location and we need this signature to be printed only in the pdf file. So that the next time a new signature is inserted, the old one will not be available to the user.

  7. Allow Bates numbering of digitally secured documents

    My organization has to produce administrative records for court filings, and has to Bates number the documents. Many of them are digitally signed, and we have to break the digital signature (by printing to MS XPS and back to PDF) to be able to Bates number them. Considering that Bates numbering simply adds numbers to the pages but doesn't otherwise compromise the digital signature, please consider developing a way to add Bates numbers to be applied to digitally signed documents.

  9. AIP protected files do not open in Adobe reader 32 bit

    After the last update to the 2022.011.20142 version, which has the "Microsoft AIP" plugin bundled in the installation, Adobe reader in the 32 bit version won't open AIP protected PDF files.
    The program will start a background proccess but Adobe won't open, only after ending the task you'll be able to open adobe reader at all.
    The problem is solved when reinstalling the 64 bit version, but this is a headache to any organization that has multiple devices with the 32 bit version.

  11. Interfaces freeze after manual signature validation

    Acrobat Reader DC 22.001.20117 completely freezes in this scenario:
    * deselect from the signature validation preferences "Verify signatures when the document is opened";
    * open a signed document and validate the signature(s) (tested using "Validate All".
    The only way is to close it from the Task Manager.

  13. Expiry date for password

    It would be useful to be able to set an expiry date on the password. I sell 1 year licenses of resources and password protect them. Ideally I would like to have the password expire in a year so the customer can't access it unless they purchase a new license

  16. (De)Encryption work around

    Using Win11 I have found a method to decrypt PDF's with only the access password and not being the document's owner.

    After encrypting a PDF using Acrobat Pro you can send the file over Microsoft Teams, saving it to the sharepoint/onedrive file, you can then open the document in browser from the sharepoint location opposed to the local original file location and only the access password is required. The editing restriction password is no longer required and you can copy and paste the file contents.

  17. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. Add a video feature to the e-sign program for notaries

    Federal Law (RULONA) requires that Remote Online Notaries (RONs) maintain a video recording of the notary (virtually) meeting with the signers of legal documents. The ability to e-sign, and add a notary stamp on a pdf form, gets us most of the way there, but Adobe is missing the video recording component. Is it in the works? There is a tremendous need for this product. A single RON closer or signing agent might use this 30 or more times per month!
