  1. 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.

  2. Changing the date format in digital signature

    Please add an option to modify the date format in the digital signature.

    I mean:
    - shortening the format from 2021.10.07 '00'02 + 07:29:00 to simply 2021.10.07,
    - 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

  3. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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. )

  10. 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…

  11. I can't create a password shorter than 6 digits

    Remove the 6-digit requirement for a password. I need to be able to do a 4-digit password. I tried the workaround in the registry but it's not working. I am not sure why Adobe feels the need to set this requirement when it's not their document that is being protected.

  12. Completely disable adobe cloud storage

    Some organizations have security standards like disabling cloud storage so users cannot access data from out of office devices. Currently there is no FULL way to disable cloud storage. You can implement registry keys to stop to storage however there are work arounds that will still let you store data. Would love to have an option to completely stop the storage without having to implement registry keys or port blocks on the entire organizations computers / network. Im actually shocked this isnt a feature already.

  14. Document Cloud Audit Logs

    A logging feature similar to messages traces in offices365 with retention policies.

    If a sensitive document is shared with an external party we want to know what was shared, when it was shared, and to who it was shared. Ideally this information would be store based on the companies retention policies (10 Years, 5 Years, etc.)

    Would also be nice to have an eDiscovery function as well similar to O365

  15. Cannot sign PDF with certificate using Adobe Pro DC - SERIOUS BUG

    Cannot sign PDF with certificate using Adobe Pro DC - SERIOUS BUG.

    Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 21.005.20058 (and previous versions like 20.009.20063) work OK, but Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 21.005.20058 (latest version) generates the error:

    Adobe Acrobat Error encountered while signing
    Error encountered while signing
    The credential selected for signing is invalid
     
    System: macOS 11.5.1 (20G80) Big Sur.

    No problem with older Adobe Acrobat Pro DC versions like 2020.009.20063), but error with all newer Pro versions.

    This serious bug that blocks productivity workflows has been unfixed for more than a year now, even after reporting it many times. I hope…

  16. Protecting PDFs from Page Extraction / Better Portfolio Protection

    Hello,

    Pertaining to Adobe Acrobat, is it possible to add a protection feature that prohibits files/pages from being extracted from portfolios or multiple file PDFs? It seems odd that this feature has not already been added as it freely allows for files to be saved and used for whatever purpose, which is anything but secure. I think this feature should be considered as it would allow for people's work to be better protected.

    Thanks in advance.

  17. a no-security version of acrobat with none of the time-wasting "features" i don't want or need

    dear acrobat. a lot of legal professionals use your software. we have no - zero - zip - nada use for SECURED PDFs. These are a huge time-waster for me. No courts require or care about PDF security. It just makes my job harder. Please release a version of Adobe that automatically strips all security from PDFs and doesn't automatically create unwanted and useless restrictions that WASTE MY TIME.

  20. How to bypass a PDF password

    I created a PDF document of around 2MB file size and then went to Protection. Added both password to open and edit, both with 256-Bit AES. Saved the file with a 25 characters password.

    Now I Googled this "How to bypass a PDF Password", the third link is this "https://smallpdf.com/unlock-pdf".

    I dropped the encrypted file into the slot provided. assuming that it cant ***** it.

    But unfortunately the password was cracked both from the opening and editing end.

    I find this very disturbing !

    Kindly check this and let me know how to ensure that a password protected…
