    Update to 10.11.6 seems to have broken the signing of Adobe documents with digital certificates.  Anyone else having this problem? All the roots of trust and certificates are approved by Adobe and the system keychain and certificates show as valid but when you try to sign a document this error-error encountered while signing: the credentials. selected for invalid signature.

    I'm having the same problem on several systems. However, not all my 10.11.6 systems experience this problem. So, I went through the process of signing on both systems and captured logs. There were only a few differences between the two. The system working on the following log entries are present, but they are not present in the system does NOT.

  • Problem with implementation of digital signature in Adobe Pro 9 on Windows 8

    As request for Pfizer, Member of the support group I assists the user with software related issues. For now, I'm stuck with the following text:

    A user has Adobe 9 Pro installed on his machine to Windows 8. Whenever he wants to sign a document with a reason, there getting following error message:

    Creation of this signature could not be completed.

    Unknown error

    Technical support information: CDSHandler-619

    Click OK and try to sign in again, it works, and the document is signed. We have re-created the signature and deleted all the old signatures of its system. The problem persists.

    The issue is underway, since the user migrated from Windows XP to Windows 8. We have tested the following:

    1 establishment of the document .pdf by another user using Adobe 9 Pro or Pro XI

    2 creation of document .pdf by user using Adobe 9 Pro

    In the second case, when a Word document is saved as a .pdf document, the signature is placed directly. The error occurs in all other cases (.pdf document Word in Adobe using Adobe Pro 9 or creation in Adobe 11) and the second attempt is successful.

    I have a date value remove Adobe 9 Pro for system users and install Pro XI, but want to make sure I'm not missing something.

    What can be the problem and how can it be solved? Thanks a lot for your comments.

    Acrobat 9 was never certified for Win8 and it is no longer supported. So, if there is a problem it the only recourse is updated Acrobat to a supported version (I would advocate for Acrobat DC).

  • Cannot insert pages in a PDF file after having signed with a digital signature in adobe 9

    Is there no workaround solution that allows me to insert additional pages in a SIGNED pdf file?


    Author of a form create a form that needs multiple signatures and attached pages and converted to PDF format for the signature. Person 1 sign and sends it to the person 2. Person 2 must include additional documents and insert pages before signing.

    In the new version, I noticed that it changes the security documents that may prevent the insertion after logging it. How can I disable this?

    Hi Bob,

    You don't like the answer, but it cannot be disabled. In previous versions, when you added a page it invalidates the signature. Starting with Acrobat 9, once the PDF file is signed is no longer changes the content of the core PDF. The change was made to protect the integrity of the signature. You can still add comments, but (without being too geeky) comments are not part of the core PDF as pages are, they live in a separate level. In addition, you can always add data form, but as the comments, what you type into a form is no field not part of the core PDF.

    The main thing is, we made the change to protect the integrity of the signture, and signature protects the integrity of the document. Thus, changes made to the document are no longer allowed in signed files.


  • How to prevent the fields of signature on my IPAD Adobe Reader 11 endangered endangered

    Hi, I use Adobe Acrobat XI pro trial version. I converted a Word document to PDF format. I added text fields, scripts to add Java automatically today's date as default, the form RESET button and Signature fields. File is saved as a standard backup. All this is done in the Windows 7 environment. On the same computer, the signing in Adobe Reader fields are visible even if I don't have the means to test. When the same file is sent by electronic mail and opened on an IPAD using Adobe Reader 11.2, signature fields are missing. I intend to have my users access the file (and 30 other same) on an IPAD. Can someone advise how to resolve the problem of missing signature field. It seems that Adobe do not help with these questions, because it is not considered to be an installation problem.

    Digital signatures do not rely on mobile versions of Adobe Reader. Other viewers PDF as Expert PDF of Readdle treat like fields of electronic signature, allowing the user to draw/apply their signature designed, but is not the same as a digital signature. Adobe Reader for iOS allows you to add an electronic signature, but it does not use the fields of digital signature for this feature. Instead, you tap the screen, choose the icon annotations, and then click the signature icon.

  • link unwanted e-mail with digital signature

    I created a digital signature in adobe reader and now my email (MAC OX system) wants to access it whenever I have send an email. I deleted my Keychain Access certificate in Adobe utilities but I can't find out how to remove the link to my e-mail system.  Whenever I have email, I get the message that OS X wants to make changes. If I deny I get this message: an error occurred when trying sign this message with a certificate 'my address e-mail here. Check that your certificate to this address is correct, and that his private key is in your keychain.

    Even if the certificate was there, I got this message. I loop so back to first ask for your permission changes. I never asked Adobe to start to sign my emails and cannot understand it. Help

    just worked out--Phew!

  • digital signature of a certificate

    I created a digital signature in adobe reader, there is a one-year certificate and is valid 5 years. How can I change the password?

    Shirley Millicans

    Hi shirleym33670907,

    It is not possible to change the password.

    If you have forgotten the password you will need to create a new digital signature, there is no way to recover it.

    Kind regards


  • The digital signature does not not after 11.0.09 update.


    I use Adobe Acrobat Pro XI at the office and was able to use the digital certificate provided by my company and stored in the Windows certificate store to digitally sign PDF documents. After the update (11.0.09) that has stopped working; When I try to sign a document, I'm invited to create a digital ID or choose an existing one from a file; A digital ID for roaming, accessible through the server; A device connected to this computer. However, I can't use existing ID which is always available in the Windows certificate store and used to work before.

    (The same thing happens with the digital signature in Adobe Reader after the update).

    Has changed nothing about how certificates are used for digital signatures with this last update?

    Thank you.

    Kind regards

    Take a look at my question. Possibly related: can use GoDaddy certificate to sign into Microsoft Office Word 2010, but not in Adobe Acrobat XI 10.0.09

  • Can someone put an electronic signature if they have Adobe Reader?

    I have created a form with Adobe X Pro that requires a signature, but a majority of the people, that I will send this form will probably have only adobe reader software.  Is there a way for them to "place an ink signature" or sign up with adobe reader?

    There are two types of signatures that Adobe Reader can apply.

    1. the Digital Signature requires a Reader extended via Adobe Acrobat Pro or LIveCycle Server ES4 document and a Signature field pre-created in the document.

    2. the Electronic Signature, which is applied by means of an online service called EchoSign Adobe and who is a paid service.

    You must decide is you want your users to use, and then continue accordingly.

  • Problems with adding fields of digital signature

    OK, so I'm an IT Manager / developer DB for a defense contractor. And I consider myself reasonably technically competent in MOST things. But this problem has left me speechless (for the most part) for lack of decent instructions or advice are on the lines.

    , I'm looking to create a form for use by the employees of my company to follow the 'signatures'. we have so far put in forms manually signed for this purpose, my goal is to go paperless with this process. I know it can be done because the air force (my client) uses a form that allows you to do something similar (see here: Forward listed form allows you to 'click' on the signature block and add your digital signature (which, for the AF, comes from an IDENTITY card). Let explain me the dev environment, I am using / testing on:

    Creation of the form:

    I use my laptop with my own personal copy of Adobe Pro 9. I have no installed dig signature or any ability to use on this system. I CAN, however, add the field to the GIS during the creation of the form and the field responds when you click on it, but with a command prompt different than the 2875 (I think this may be part of the question). Then I tried sending it to my AF computer to test whether it will actually allow me to add a signature block.

    Tested the form:

    On my AF computer I only software adobe reader 9 installed, and it will allow me to add my signature to the DD 2875. When I do my newly created form with my added field GIS that nothing happens at ALL when you click it.


    I first noticed that under form properties security has been put in place to NOT allow the signing. I changed that and returned on one system to the other, and it seems that in the translation he loses this setting. First, I assumed it might be due to the security the AF place on its e-mail servers. So in response I burned the form of a cd and manually transferred but got the same result.


    I terribly bit educated on the development of PDF I suspect to understand everything that happens here, but I feel there's a script attached to the FA form that works and allows him to function properly. If this is the case I don't know what recourse I have, if any. BUT, if its something simple that I'm missing just in cause of my lack of experience I hope someone here can help me.

    Thank you!

    Hi LBitner99,

    Before you can use Adobe Reader to add a digital signature to a PDF document, the file must be "enabled for the drive.  There are two ways to do this, you must use a server, what the DoD because they need to drive helps thousands of documents. The other way is to use Acrobat Pro (I know that you said you have Pro, but for anyone else reading this has has Acrobat Standard, this version is not the feature activate Reader).

    With the file you worked on open in select Acrobat the Advanced > extend features in Adobe Reader menu item. Click the Save button in the dialog box that followed, and the new file will have digital signature rights in Reader.

    I hope this helps.
