I managed to fix the problem.
the issue was the actual registration to your Adobe account.
before anything when the acrobat is opened, go to "preference" and go to "adobe online services" click on "manage account" and login to your adobe account. this will link the desktop version with the online.
then just press "OK" and do the "Request signing". this will pass the 72% and will upload the file to your account.
I have been experiencing this same problem . . . Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Request Signatures feature gets hung up uploading at the Specify Where To Sign step, right at 72%.
I followed the steps you suggest in your answer, but the problem persists. Any other ideas?
Just tried to set up a request for signature for the 1st time and had this issue at 72% loading. It's 1/27/2022. Adobe?
Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. Would you mind sharing the version of the Adobe Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > Abpout Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 21.11.20039 installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot.
Are you on a personal network or company network? Please try to switch the network and check if that helps. Also try to logout of the application and reboot the computer once and religion with the same Adobe ID and check.
You may also try to request signature via document cloud and check if that works for you https://acrobat.adobe.com/link/home/
I wont speak for anyone else but I was told to do the same thing when i contacted support, it doesnt help. I am on the most up to date version, i have rebooted, i switched networks. I personally do not want work arounds, i want a solution for the problem with the app. I personally do not want to use the clolud online version. Please update on the status of a solution.
Yes, I am using that version.
I was on a company network. I gave it a try when I got to my home network and it worked!
Is there a configuration or somethign I need to do to be able to process documents on my work network?
Thanks for tryong out the suggestion. As mentioned it working on your home/personal network and not on the company network, there isn't much we can do. Please try to get in touch with the IT admin at your work for more information.
For our organization, the security team had to adjust something called Zscaler to not inspect the SSL traffic returned from Adobe Sign. That's all I got... I interpret that as when a user is in Adobe, selects "get signature" or whatever it's called, and the document uploads to the Adobe cloud, at that moment that it's trying to render back on the user's system with the ability to add signature fields etc, that it got stopped or blocked by this Zscaler system. Our team had to ensure that specific traffic was allowed back into our environment by presumably telling Zscaler to not scan that specific URL maybe. They didn't give me any more info, but when they adjusted that system, we could use the signing function as intended.
The best way to determine if it's your security system is to take your computer off VPN or network and just try to have a document signed. If it works fine, then it's someone on the VPN or network security.
Apparently if you're using the online version (browser) you have to clear cookies and caches, sign out & in. I did that and it worked.
If you're using the desktop version, sign out and sign back in. Supposedly that works.
Support also gave me this link, open in a incognito or private browser:
sign in and it worked for me. If it works on the incognito/private browser the problem is "cookies & caches".
Adobe, you only seem to acknowledge replies to the initial post, so here it is:
Today is March 25, 2022 and I'm having this issue AGAIN/STILL.
It seems to work fine sometimes. But other times, when I "Specify Where To Sign," the upload gets hung up at 72% with no end in sight.
What is the current status of your solution to this problem?
Please do not offer me the online tool. Please do not suggest I reboot/restart Acrobat/uninstall/resinstall/any of your other suggestions that have not resolved this problem. Please, just fix the problem.
We are sorry to hear that the issue still exists.
Are you on a private network or using the work/company network? Please try to change your network and see if that works.
Also, try to log out of the application, reboot the computer once and re-login with the same credentials, and check. Also, make sure you have the recent version 22.1.20085 installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.
For testing purposes only, please try to request signatures via the Document Cloud link https://acrobat.adobe.com/link/home/ and see if you are able to request signatures.

We are sorry to hear that.
We would require the procmon logs (Win only) of the affected machine https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Labs/acromonitor.html and the network fiddler logs https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/troubleshoot/diagnostic-logs/run-fiddler-trace and the sample PDF file that you are trying the send for signature https://helpx.adobe.com/document-cloud/help/sharing-pdfs.html , so that we can isolate the issue for the fix.
I'm still having problems. At 72 %, the e signatire request hangs
I have a paid Enterprice account, and this issue has caused a major roadblock in a time-sensitive project. Adobe is doing nothing to assist.
29 July 2022, I have the same issue. It worked before but now just stuck on 72%. Impacting on my productivity.
We are sorry to hear that.
Please logout of the application and reboot the computer once and re-login with the same Adobe ID and check if that works. You may also request signatures via the document cloud link https://acrobat.adobe.com/link/home/
There has to be a better solution to the problem since most of the forum users on here have tried all the basic troubleshooting steps you/adobe/and any tech savy people have tried. I know I have tried multiple times and even rebuilt three separate PC's for users trying to fix this. Still happens. I hope Adobe is looking into making sure all their products whether they are cloud based or not work properly or someone will eventually be asking for all theior money back. Also, not everyone wants to put their buisness documents out on the web or in the cloud.
Also, sorry for the typo's. I've been working to find a solution for this issue all day and all of last week as well.
We are sorry to hear that the issue still persists.
Would you mind sharing the version of the Acrobat DC and the OS you are using? To check the version of the application go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 22.2.20191. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.
I have the same issue. Stopped at 72%. Using home pc and home internet. It worked the first 4 times I used it. Now all of a sudden it no longer works. Tried every single workaround on this thread. The only reason I subscribe to DC Pro, is for the signature feature. Please fix it.
Adobe, this is absolutely ridiculous and unprofessional- we need a solution here and you are deliberately avoiding responding to posts after people try your fixes and they don't work.
December 2th 2022, crazy 72% issue still happening even with Zscaler disabled (completely turned off), restarts, logged-out and logged-in again both in Web and in the Preferences Adobe Reader Mac version. Nothing.
This is ridiculous! See images below:
