  1. Quickbooks error code h202

    Quickbooks error code H202 appears due to a terminating server connection, which is a multi-user mode error. The H202 error indicates that the company file is stored on an external device that the user's computer cannot access. It shows that the server requires assistance to connect. A user also cannot access or open files on other computers.
    Sometimes, this error occurs, mainly due to connectivity issues. Quickbooks cannot establish a connection with the original file destination and is unable to open the file. Multiple file uses aren't possible in this case due to security reasons.

  2. Problema firma Acrobat reader de archivo creado en Adobe LiveCycle

    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…

  3. Digital Signatures

    i need to have 2 different type of signature ie one drawn using personal name and one drawn using company name. Presently this is not allowed as one can only have one drawn signature per account.

    there should be a feature to allow for multiple signatures in one account as different document requires different signature.

    Am not sure why we are allowed to create namy digital signatures when one can only have one drawn signature at any one time.

    please add this feature.

  4. Support for sinature images with transparent background

    Currently when you add an image of your signature already prepared with a transparent background, Reader will discard the transparency and crop the signature. The result looks good on white backgrounds only and even there only when not overlapping any lines.
    Please add support for using sinatures with transparency untouched.

  5. about sha algorithms

    hello, as you know, SHA-224 consists of six functions, 256, 384, 512, 512/224, 512/256, 256 and 512. But it encrypts with adobe acrobat sha 256. In my country, only 256 algorithm is not used. However, only 256 encryptions are made in Adobe. In my country, there are 384 sha encryption generators among the e-signature certificates produced by e-signature companies. I have the sha256 certificate, I can use it, but I cannot use the sha384 certificate. Having a method that supports or selects all sha values ​​in your software will provide a great opportunity for both the development of your software…

  7. Bug. Problème aléatoire lors de la signature avec certificat

    Lors de la signature d'un document avec un certificat, la fenêtre de sélection du certificat à utiliser n'apparait pas. On reste avec un affichage opacifié, Acrobat ne répond plus et on est obliger de forcer son arrêt. Ce problème est apparu il y a quelques jours, sans doute après la dernière mise à jour d'Acrobat, est aléatoire et semble se produire surtout avec Windows 7.

  10. Cannot disable 'Fill & Sign' autocomplete.

    I've already went online to unchecked the 'Auto-suggestions' option and cleared suggestions history.

    Went back to using the Windows offline version. I am not signed in. suggestions still pop-up. Please look into this.

    Also, for the love of all's good, please make this setting more accessible. Either make this setting available directly within the app itself or accessible directly online.

    I cannot fathom why would they make the user jump through hoops for simple, commonly used functions. It's almost as if the offline and online functions were designed and developed completely separately and then later clunked together.

    Recently kind of…

  12. EXTREMELY ANNOYING

    I am trying to sign in to another adobe account on my desktop. The way the software application has been built MAKES THAT EXTREMELY ANNOYING AND DIFFICULT TO NAVIGATE

    Because for whatever reason, who ever developed the sign-in flow DIDN'T REALIZE THAT PERHAPS SOMEONE WOULD WANT TO LOG IN TO ANOTHER ACCOUNT SO LETS GIVE THE USERS THE OPTION TO DO JUST THAT!

    Instead, what the application does, is it forces the user to continually log into the same **** account and no matter how many times you try to get to log in page, it AUTOMATICALLY SIGNS YOU IN

  13. BUG: EUTL corrupted by default

    If addressbook.acrodata is generated by updating Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL), EUTL will be corrupted. The default behavior of Adobe Reader when opening a signed document for the first time is to prompt for update of AATL. This causes EUTL to stop working and can only be solved by deleting addressbook.acrodata and update EUTL and AATL in the correct order.

    Steps to reproduce the issue:
    1. Install Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
    2. Open a document signed with an EUTL certificate.
    3. Accept the prompt for Trust Certificates Update.

    Environment:
    Freshly installed clean VM with Windows 10 20H2(19042.985)

  14. Make signature "intended usage" more intuitive

    I recently ran into a situation, quite similar to those described here ( https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader/digital-signature/td-p/9192902?page=1 ).

    I was trying to sing a document using Acrobat Reader DC 2020.012.20048, but somehow Acrobat was not giving me an option to use the certificate I was going to use. Everything looks fine, no errors, but it still just suggests me to create a new digital ID.

    Similar to this ( https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader/digital-signature/m-p/9192908#M28305 ), I see a green checkmark for "sign documents or data" (see 1st attached screenshot),

    but it still doesn't work. This is quite misleading and non user-friendly. Everything should work OK, if there…

  15. Keyboard shortcut for fill & sign

    Please add a keyboard shortcut for fill & sign! Adding this speeds up the process for signature on PDF documents for confirming invoices on the logistics/business side of things.

    It doesn't take much effort to add the option for custom keyboard shortcuts too if you can add this to the paid Acrobat version.

  16. No confirmation or undo when deleting signature

    1) Have a Signature
    2) Click the Sign button
    3) Click the little minus button next to your signature
    4) The signature is immediately and irrevocably deleted.

    This also works for Initials.

    Need a confirmation window, or the ability to undo the deletion.

    If I didn't have a scanner handy after accidentally doing this, I would be royally screwed right now.

    (I have not investigated whether this behavior is configurable, but even having this as a default setting seems like a very bad idea)

  20. Inserting Certificate in Right Aligned mode reverts Date & Time strings

    When creating a new certificate there is the option to "right align" the entries. In the preview it seemed to invert the position of Name and Date/Time fields (which is what I was looking for, actually), and the strings looked good. After having inserted the signature and reviewing the stored document the actual date and time strings read backwards (c.f. screenshot attached: top row "auto" alignment, bottom row "right" alignment).
    While the reverted strings may be a bug, the actual feature request would be to have two options:
    - left / right center alignment of the entries, if you consider…
