Hi rennels,

I understand what you're saying that it doesn't make sense that you can see the bottom buttons, but not the password confirmation field. It's a bug in how the dialog is drawn. Please try a slightly higher screen resolution and let me know if that brings up the missing password field.

Thanks,

Steve

It took me a while to get back into it, but your solution helped me detach my digital ID so I was able to create a new one w/o remembering my forgotten password. Thanks!

Hello PattiP,

Please follow the path C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Acrobat\DC\Security

This holds the file for all of the signature created Adobe DC.

You be able to delete each signature and they will not appear in the Sign As menu once removed.

I hope this helps. Good Luck

Hi, 

 

Did we ever figure out how to delete signatures so that we can make useful edits to PDF documents?  

 

Surely this must be possible in 2021!

You're not supposed to delete signatures from a file (unless you applied them). If you want to edit it ask the people who sent it to you to send a non-signed version.
