  1. I frequently have to sign timesheets that have been scanned on to email. (i.e Flat form without autofull fields) Adding my signature is easy, but I have to type the date out as text. Having an extra button that allows the date to be added, without having to type it would be fantastic.

  2. Recently we have noticed certificate revocation checking failures with the latest version of Acrobat Reader DC.

    In the Department of Defense, the OCSP URLs in the DOD PKI are "http://ocsp.disa.mil". These servers work. But they do not respond on the SSL-enabled port (https). But when we try to verify signatures with Acrobat DC, we get connection failures. Network tracing has revealed that even though the URLs in the certificate specify http, Adobe Reader is trying to connect to the https port, and this gets timeouts.

    Environment: MacOS X
    Steps to reproduce: Get a certificate that has an OCSP URL…

  3. Steps to reproduce:
    * Using a free Adobe account send a document requesting signatures
    * Send a second document requesting signatures
    * Pull back the first document (Acrobat reader deducts the document from documents sent budget)
    * try sending a document (that should take the second document place from the budget)
    * Observe how it isn't possible as the backend hasn't deducted "spent documents" when the first document war pulled back.

  4. Observed behaviour:
    The PDF generated by digitally signing in Adobe Reader is showing as LTV enabled in Adobe Reader/ Acrobat, even if the checkbox for "Include signature's revocation status" while signing is disabled in Preferences > Categories > Signatures > Creation and Appearance Preferences > When Signing.

    Expected behaviour:
    if the checkbox for "Include signature's revocation status" while signing is disabled in Preferences > Categories > Signatures > Creation and Appearance Preferences > When Signing, then the signed PDF should not be LTV enabled.

    This is a bug in Adobe Reader/ Acrobat. Please rectify.

  5. A digital signature showing as "LTV enabled" in the signature panel of Adobe reader becomes "not LTV enabled" if in 'Signature Verification Preferences' dialog that opens (In Edit > Preferences, under categories, select Signatures.. From the Verification box in the Digital Signatures panel, select More...)

    , we deselect the Require certificate revocation checking to succeed... checkbox.

    However, the same signature again becomes LTV enabled if we select Require certificate revocation checking to succeed... checkbox.

    It is a bug in Adobe Reader (latest version).
    Please rectify.

  6. While trying to sign a PDF using a DSC (Digital Certificate) Physical token, the popup screen to capture PIN for the token does not allow more than 8 alphanumeric characters.

    As you can see in the image uploaded, after 9 characters are entered the "OK" button is greyed out.

    The DSC token manager provided by the Signature Authority typically allows the token PIN to be at least 12 characters.

  7. Good morning,

    We are an IT company that distributes Adobe Acrobat pre-installed on the computers we sell to customers.

    With the latest version of Adobe Acrobat (2023.006.20380) we find that many customers who need to use digital certificates to sign and cannot, either because the application gives an error or because the side submenu of the digital certificates section does not appears.

    We have fixed this for now by installing an older version (2023.001.20064) and disabling the task scheduler update task.

    Is there a plan to fix this problem?

  8. I had problems with digitally signing documents in Acrobat Reader 2023.003 via a certificate on a smart card. Whereas in Acrobat Standard 2017 the digital signature worked correctly, in Acrobat Reader DC an error message popped up: Error in BER decoding, and the signature, which was visible in the document was not valid. The Adobe support recommended using a solution by re-creating the digital ID and/or Crypto folder (see https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/error-creation-signature-could-completed.html). But this did not solve the problem. By further internet search I found a discussion in the Adobe Community which recommended:
    Go to Preferences of Adobe: Edit/Preferences/Security (Enhanced):

  9. (If you need the bug report in english, text me and i will translate it for you.)

    Když chci vložit podpis na základě certifikátu, klepnu na "Certifikáty" následně na "Digitálně podepsat" tak při výběru je tlačítko pro zobrazení podrobností posunuté to rámečku jiného podpisu, ikdyž k němu nepatří.

    Je to matoucí a mělo by to být zarovnané vedle podpisu, ke kterému patří.

    Přikládám snímek obrazovky.

  10. I could'n't find clear info anywhere or confirmation but I noticed that all documents signed with the FILL & SIGN feature of Adobe Reader (Free) cannot be locked and is editable using Adobe Acrobat Pro. the same document signed using Adobe Acrobat Pro will be locked automatically with no editing, changes to signature allowed. why is this obvious downside of using Adobe Reader (Free) not more publicised ? In fact, there is even a pop-up stating the signature will not be editable BUT that is clearly not true if signed with Adobe Reader (free)

  12. There is no Windows lookup on certificate warehouses, and so you have to export and import the desire certificate to the adobe library, you permit importing multiple intermediate certificate with a p7b cert file but if you select multiple cert from Windows Cert Console and export them to a p7b file so you can import them all at once on Adobe Acrobat, it shows an error message "Error at analyze the selected file" next line "Error Code 25" and in the last line the path of the file, if you push details it just shows three layers of the same…

  14. When using "Fill & Sign", I was able to input both Japanese and alphanumeric characters directly, but suddenly, only Japanese is reflected in the small IME window (aka "green arrow") that appears in the upper left corner of the screen, and it is not reflected in a given location in the PDF unless converted and entered.

    I am using it on Windows 10, but it seems to be occurring on Windows 11 and other versions as well.

    Please figure out the cause and fix the program.

  16. Difficulties with login in Armstrong let's talk about the causes and solutions for MyWire mail difficulties, which can happen at any time.

    Browser Problem
    1. Issues with login also arise with outdated browsers.
    2. Issues with Armstrong could also be caused by incompatible browsers.
    3. Login to MyWire email
    4. Sometimes a browser's cache causes issues, therefore clearing the cache can help.

  17. Every time I send a document to sign. It always ask the client to review and sign. But that langue is extremely aggressive and literal losses me clients all the time. Because no one wants to push a button that says sign before even reading what's in the document.

    Can you just change it to review.

    Getting people to read a document is hard enough, I don't need a program giving them a built in excuse not to open it

  18. https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/acrocef-rdrcef-errors.html provides admins a method to close RdrCEF process when Reader has problems working with digital signatures. Users are unable to stop this process and with this in mind, can Reader be developed so that it terminates this process periodically, as it tends to start up when Reader is launched. Please note that this process is either in background processes or as a child process of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, which on Windows 10 makes it a little tricky to locate immediately. If user is unable to unload this process, then it prevents users being able to digitally sign PDF…

  19. Reader DC bug: It says my certified signature is invalid, because document was modified, even if I save the edited document before signing. This problem was not happening on previous versions. It should only be considered modified, if I edit the document after signing.

  20. Buenos días!

    He creado un archivo con Adobe LiveCycle, en el que campos deben rellenarse después de la firma. Todo funciona correctamente con Adobe Pro, pero no con Adobe Reader.
    Contacté vía chat con el servicio de asistencia pero me dijeron que era un problema de incompatibilidad de ambos programas por que esa acción se creaba en forma XFA, que no soportaba Adobe Reader.
    Considero importante que se pudieran firmar ese tipo de documentos con Adobe Reader o DC, que es el que utiliza la mayoría de los usuarios, ya que sí que funciona perfectamente con otros lectores de pdf…
