'Fill and Sign' not working

New Here ,

Copied

This has been happening for the past month.

Click on "Sign" in 'Fill and Sign'

Blank box loads and nothing else. No way to enter my signature, load signature, etc. Stays blank forever (i.e. not just loading slowly)

Using Windows 10 fully updated, brand new Lenovo Thinkpad X1Carbon. Have already uninstalled / repaired Adobe Acrobat without effect. Have restarted PC, etc etc.

Have several forms that need to be turned over quickly with my signature. Adobe - please fix.

I was able to find the issue.  Go to Menu and click "disable new Acrobat" it returned to the original version and works for me now.  It is something with the new version causing the issue, at least for me.

Hey Syeda,

Sorry to hear about the trouble.

Using Windows 10 fully updated, brand new Lenovo Thinkpad X1Carbon. Have already uninstalled / repaired Adobe Acrobat without effect. Have restarted PC, etc

Looking at the description given above, it seems that you have already got the updated version of Acrobat and uninstalled and reinstalled it. You may try the further steps given below and let us know the result-

  • Reboot your computer first.
  • I see that you haven't signed in in the application. Though it shouldn't effect but try Signing In the application following the "Sign In" option given at the upper right corner of the Adobe Reader.
  • Check with a different pdf and try signing it.
  • Though you have got the application reinstalled, but do check whether you have got the latest patch 20019.010.20098 installed or not. DC Release Notes — Release Notes for Acrobat DC Products
  • Disable "Protected View" and "Enhanced Security" under Adobe Reader>Edit>Preferences>Security(Enhanced)>Reboot Acrobat Reader and reopen it.

Note: Changing the above security settings could pose security risks. We suggest you to turn it back On once you are done with testing.

Thanks,

Akanchha

Unfortunatelly non of those suggestions work.

I have the same problem. And on top of that Singinig in always results in a message "An error occured".

Everything worked fine in August last year, and now suddenly I get the same blank square showin up. And sometimes DC crushes when the Fill&Sign button is pressed.

Hi All,

 

We have released an update for Acrobat and Reader DC(version 21.001.20138) that addresses multiple issue.

Please update the application to the latest version and see if that helps. In the application, go to Help > Check for updates.

Yeah this is ridiculous. It NEVER worked for me. How can Adobe have an application on the professional level that doesn't work ever. Signatures never worked for the years I had tried to use this. I had reinstalled it as well. It is up to date.

I must admit it works for me now, both when signed in or signed out. The only thing I changed was the location / network I was in. I was offshore before, in unsusual conditions, but I had internet with good speed. Now, beeing in some hotel with much slower internet, it all works.

Hi Guys,

 

I was having the same problem, but have just realised that the Font colour was set to white!!!!!!

It looks like you are typing nothing, but it was just white on white.  Can that be the issue some of you are having?

Hi Andrew,

 

Thanks for sharing your findings, as this would help to other users who are experiencing issue with filling a form.

This is the scenario when filling forms doesn't show the character. In this case the font color is selected as white, because of that it doesn't show the text on white background. 

 

Regards,

Akanchha

I'm having the same issue on my work computer. It's working on my laptop.  Even IT is struggling. They tried to call Adobe yesterday and they were 100% useless. It's a shame because when the program works it's great.

Same. When I click Fill & Sign in both the new and old versions, Adobe freezes and crashes. I've sent numerous crash reports within the last three days.

Hello MeenakshiNegi,

I have tried all the troubleshooting steps suggested above and nothing fixed the issue.

-The crash will occur on any file. I just have to click 'Fill & Sign' then the application will freeze and crash. Any other tool i use will work perfectly. 

-The acrobat verson currently in use is: Adobe Acrobat Pro (64-bit) (2024.002.20933)

-OS verson is a Windows 11 Pro, 64-bit operating system, OS build 22621.819

 

Do you have any other troubleshooting options for us?? Thankyou!

You are BRILLIANT! Thank you so much. You fixed the issue I've been having all week. I was so frustrated because I use this feature a lot.  My IT person was going crazy with it too and he laughed when I told him I fixed it.
