Hi everyone, I'm facing an issue with the Request Signature feature in Adobe Acrobat. The button 'Specify where to sign' seems to be inoperand, I fill the people who I want to request but when I click on the button nothing happens literally. It used to work fine a couple of week ago but now seems to be inoperant. I already tried reinstalling Acrobat but the issue persists, has anyone seen something like that ?

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble.

 

Is this an issue with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try with a different PDF file and check.

 

What is the version of the Acrobat DC and the OS you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 22.2.20191 installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.

 

Also, please try to request signatures via document cloud using the link https://acrobat.adobe.com/ and see if that works.

 

Regards

Amal

Hi Amal,

 

Thanks for your help on this. The version we have is the 22.001.20085 which is the one we've packaged in our company. The issue is hapenning in all documents. I'll try updating the version and see how it goes. Any other thoughts?

Hi Amal, thanks for you help. Unfortunately updating to the latest one didn't work. I've trying with different documents and different users in my company and the behaviour is the same. Even clicking on the More Options doesn't do nothing. The only button that works is the Cancel one.

Hi there,

 

We are sorry to hear that.

 

Please try to logout of the application and reboot the computer once and relogin with the same Adobe ID and try requesting the signatures and see if that works.

 

Also, please try to request signatures via Document Cloud - https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/home/ and check if that helps.

 

Also, please go through a similar discussion with the correct answer marked here https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/cannot-request-signature-quot-user-provisioned-in... and see if that works. 

 

Regards

Amal

Amal,

 

Adobe Pro DC appears not to have the option to send for e-signature any more.  We have several stations with Pro installed and the new installation, and yes the new installation is Pro, does not include the option to send for e-signature in the drop down menu.  Not good!

Hi there

 

Are you able to request signatures via document cloud as described earlier?

 

Also, please try to remove the application using the Acrobat cleaner tool https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Labs/cleaner.html , reboot the computer once and reinstall the application using the direct link https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/acrobat-dc-downloads.html and see if that helps.

I can use signatures on the cloud/web based application.  But that is not the preferred technique.  I work for the State and can not do installations on my machine. IT does all the installs.  They report that this "issue" is a known problem and that Adobe has been non-responsive in resolving it.  I will let them continue looing into a way to resolve the what we are now calling the "Adobe bug".  Cheers and thank you.

Hi Amal.

 

I've also tried what it's the article and still not working. What I noticed is when I sign off and sign in with my personal acc that works. When I sign back in with the corporate one that stops working. We've Acrobat Std licenses, that should work anyway. We can't also access the web version with the corporate one. That says it's blocked and we should contact the support.
