I have a user that is using Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 and she is unable to sign pdf forms, when I check the review details option the "Appearance Integrity" Report shows the following:

-  4000 unrecognized PDF content

- 1001 comment or form field may silently change

- 1008 document contains hidden behaviors

- 1005 the document contains an XFA based form

I uninstalled the software, deleted all remaining folders, removed the certificates, cleared the SSL state, and restarted the computer. After re-installing the software she still have the same problem.

Any assistance is much appreciated

I am having the same issue as reported in this thread with all PDFs that I try to sign. It just came on recently as I was able to sign before with no issues. I have Adobe Acrobat 2020 (20.001.30025) on Windows 10. I have tried to do a repair instalation and re-installation with no luck. Anyone have any suggestions?

For better understanding of this issue, could you please confirm the exact steps performed to sign a document, as well as screenshot of the error message. 

Also, have you started experiencing this issue immediately after installing the update?
