AFAIK both Acrobat and Reader ask for the location to save signed PDF (I presume that by "digitally sign" you mean sign with certificate). On my installation I never saw Reader to add "-signed" to the filename. You might have a custom Reader setup that does that (someone else may have done that for you and you're not aware of that). If so, then the same setup needs to be replicated for Acrobat DC. Are doing this in the desktop or on a browser? If in a browser, then which one?
Thanks for the reply.
Adobe Reader XI appends the file name by default. DC does not do this unfortunetly. Please see the screen shot here:
In the folder you can see the original file name (highlighted). In the file name field you can see that Adobe Reader as appended the file name with -signed.
When I say "digitally sign" I am doing the following:
- Open Adobe Reader
- Open a PDF
- In the upper right hand corner, click "Fill & Sign"
- Click place initials
- Click File > Save-as
Once that is done it brings you to the screen above.
I would like to be able to do this in Adobe Standard DC 2015.
The second issue is that both Adobe reader and Acrobat save files into the last directory that the user saves a file into, not the directory that you opened the file from. For instance if you open a PDF in C:\folder1 modify it then save it back into c:\folder1, then go to c:\folder2 open a PDF modify and click file > save as it will save the PDF from c:\folder2 into c:\folder1 because that is the last directory you saved a file into.
In Foxit Phantom and Foxit Reader there is a "recent directory" option when you click file > save as. Is there anything like this in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader?
I was talking about Digital Signatures. You are using e-signatures. Someone else would have to advise you on those as I do not use them much.
Hi Chris, have you gotten this resolved yet? We have a user with the same question with Adobe Acrobat 2017.
Has anyone been able to resolve this nuance? I have various version of Acrobat in my environment and certain users have relied on this feature as a crutch now.
