Something changed in my Adobe Export PDF program when someone sent me a PDF file that they had e-signed. Now, with every PDF I open, there is a pop-up box that the document is being "prepared". How can I disable that? Thanks!
Sorry for the delay in response to your query and apologize for the inconvenience caused. Please refer to the following KB which discusses the similar scenario Hide the message Content Preparation Progress when opening a PDF file

Let us know how it goes.
What worked best was checking "Confirm before tagging documents" under "Reading" in preferences. What this does is popping up the "Reading Untagged Documents" window upon opening a document where tagging can be stopped by clicking "Cancel". Then all the tagging process gets stopped and documents open without delay.
Selecting "Only read the currently visible pages" under "Screen Reader Options" does not help while opening large pages i.e. customized 15.5x100", and "Enable assistive technology support" under the "Accessibility" option in "Preferences" does not exist in Adobe XI (version 11.0.0) therefore unchecking is not an option.
What is unclear to me is why this check appeared out of nothing. I was able to open my large custom sized files without delay until I opened an attachment from my e-mail and the "Reading Untagged Documents" window appeared to which I pressed "Start", then it defaulted to tagging all documents I opened from then on, until I figured out how to stop tagging.
How can you stop Adobe Pro XI from tagging documents for good?

What worked for me was unchecking "Enable assistive technology support" under the "Accessibility" option in "Preferences".
Same here "What worked for me was unchecking "Enable assistive technology support" under the "Accessibility" option in "Preferences"."
Just too many hooks in preferences that have little or no explainations. Why would this even be enabled to begin with? It started after a recent update.

Thanks, Scott! Be sure to restart Acrobat after unchecking"Enable assistive technology support"
