Since Friday, November 17th, 2017, we cannot open adobe acrobat form documents that contains digital signature fields. When we try to open the document, Adobe Acrobat application is not responding. First, I thought it is about verifying the digital signatures but even the unsigned form cannot be open. Also same document that digitally signed before cannot be open.
I created this form using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC in April 2017. It was working fine until November 17th, 2017. All our users have same problem. Please advice.
Could you let us know the version of Acrobat you have on the machine? To check the version: Identify the product and its version for Acrobat and Reader DC
And, the operating system installed on the machine?
Would it be possible if you can share one of the pdf forms with us to replicate the issue at our end? I have sent you a private message for the same, please check the inbox.
I got your private message and sent you the form.

Please could you attach the unsigned pdf document , if the document does not contain any confidential information.
