What version of Acrobat, what OS, and have you installed an update to you OS or Acrobat right before this problem started?
Acrobat XI v11.0.18
Win7 Pro SP1
Dell Latitude E5450
The computer is on a corporate network and they push all updates to us, but I did not see a notice of update around the time when this error started.
Can you share the email id you are using in Acrobat ? Was this workflow working for you before ?
Hi Anurag, You may be onto something here. I have the same email address for both my Adobe ID and the Adobe Sign but they have different passwords. Could this be the cause of my troubles?
Quite possible. Please share with the email id you are using. I will sync with the Engineering team.
Anurag, I sent to you a message with the Adobe ID in it.... thanks
Yes. I have forward your request to engineering team. Will let you know their response.
By the way did it ever work in your Acrobat X1 ?
Thanks Anurag, Yes it did work at one time. Stopped working just after I upgraded to the pay version of Adobe Sign.
Adobe Sign was unable to process your PDF document(s) because we were unable to read one or more of them. This can occur if your document is corrupt or badly formed. You may wish to use the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to re-save this document to repair it
what is soltn of this?
Adobe Sign processes the document just fine from the Web Portal. Also, Adobe Sign feature within Acrobat had no problem with the document PRIOR to me paying for the feature. This problem started after I paid for the feature. I have a full Pro version of Acrobat XI, so why do I need to use Reader to fix my problem?
No solution, no support, very frustrated customer.
The test id you are using has DC entitlements. The IDs which have DC entitlements cannot use Acrobat XI.
Please download and use Acrobat DC .
Well.. here we are Dec 5th and I have not gotten any resolution, haven't even managed to speak with anyone but basic level support.
Well the resolution is that there is no resolution. I'm not very pleased about it either. I paid for Acrobat Pro XI and found and used the Sign function within that program and it worked wonderfully. There it is a menu item within the program and it is all integrated into the Acrobat XI, worked like a charm, but...ho ho wait it's only a teaser. You can only use it for a limited time and then it prompts you to "upgrade" to the pay version of Sign... okay so far I'm still onboard, because it worked from within the Acrobat Pro XI and saved me some steps over the other options that I had found. Pay $120 and presto now it doesn't work unless I switch from Acrobat Pro XI to the Acrobat DC for even more money. I had taunted this as a great solution to my boss, was allowed to purchase for the upgrade. I was on the verge of presenting this solution to a larger group but I am having to backpedal now. Does it still work? Well, yes, sort of, but not as originally described.
Why was this not made apparent BEFORE I was asked to pay for it. Why would a feature in a PAID Pro version of software work for "free" and then when you are forced to upgrade it ceases to function. A bait and switch scheme, misleading advertising and disingenuous marketing tactics. Every time I see that "Get Others To Sign" button in the menu I will be reminded of this experience.
Shame on you Adobe... Shame on you. Not to mention the 3 weeks of phone calls and frustration it took for me to be told that the functionality that I paid for in my Pro version of software would no longer work after I paid additional monies for it to work. If I want that feature to continue to work I need to upgrade another program.... There are certainly other options for working with PDF's and I will be rethinking my longtime allegiance to Adobe Acrobat. Adobe has set the bar to a new LOW in customer support. Dear Adobe, Your Session Has Timed Out.
I just ran across this after the same story as aqua_man. Fortunately the Acrobat XI came with a scanner, so it was "free". Then I also found the sign functionality after having used other services that also did not work. Oh well, bye bye Adobe. You are not even the best pdf solution out there, and this "no solution" just corroborates that. Thanks for wasting a couple hours of my time, I guess I'm fortunate in this. Sorry aqua_man, some companies just don't five a duck.
Same thing with me. The boss decided this was PERFECT! So he paid for me to use it with all our customers - but wait, THERE'S MORE! Not a stupid ginsu knife - now I have to upgrade? THIS STINKS!!!! Adobe - this is a disgusting bait and switch tactic - I agree - Adobe should make good on their product. I suppose the need for the annual plan isn't enough, they need you to switch to DC?
I cannot express the extreme HATE that I feel for companies that pull this kind of crap.
