This is for help with Adobe PDFs. We need to number thousands of PDFs and many had signature data that had to be removed individually in order to number the files. I wanted to know if there was a way to remove the signature data in batches in order to complete the numbering without having to open/print each signed pdf.

Removing Security from PDFs: Individually and in Batch

 

although I am afraid this issue has shown before and just about signatures, there are no real ways out. Though, I wanted to give some support hoping you find something there

floramc, thanks for the response. we will see if the links provided can
help. The bottom line issue is whether signatures can be removed from
batches of documents at once and then can Bates numbering be added in
batches? We have hundreds of PDF's we need to do this for.

You can try resetting the form. That should also clear the signature, if you applied it.

You can do so using this code:

this.resetForm();

If there are other fields in the file that you don't want to reset you can specify just the signature field's name, like this:

this.resetForm(["Signature1"]);

try67 thanks for the response. Unfortunately we have hundreds of PDF's we
need to both remove the signatures and then add Bates numbering to them.
Looking for a way to do these things in batches.

If you have Acrobat Pro you can do it using the Action Wizard.
