          Hi richardw94717666,


          Please let me know the version of Acrobat & OS installed on your computer?


          What do you exactly mean by document get disappear on selecting Fill & Sign tool, do they become blank?

          Have you tested this issue on other PDF files?

            Hi richardw94717666,


            Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. In order to help us find the root cause of the issue, kindly provide us the following details :

            For Windows OS


            1. Go to Run (Window + R). Type "regedit".

                 For 64 bit machine go to :  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\WebResource

                  For 32 bit machine go to:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\WebResource

                  and please verify if "cError" entry has been created or not.

            2.  Kindly share the snapshot of the contents of these two locations :

                  For 64 bit machine go to :

              • C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\<Reader/Acrobat installation>/WebResources/Resource0
              • C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\<Reader/Acrobat installation>/AcroCEF

                  For 32 bit machine go to:

              • C:\ProgramFiles\<Reader/Acrobat installation>/WebResources/Resource0
              • C:\ProgramFiles\<Reader/Acrobat installation>/AcroCEF

            For MAC OS

            1. Does this also happen with other applications like Send and Track, Send for Signature etc.?

            2. When the blank screen appears while opening Fill and Sign, go to Activity Monitor and check whether a process named "RdrCEF"/"AcroCEF" is running or not?

            3. Also go to Console application and verify if any crash logs have been generated under "User Diagnostic Reports"/"System Diagnostic Reports". If yes, please share them with us.

            3. Go to /Library/Application Support/Adobe/<Reader/Acrobat>/DC/WebResources/Resource0 and capture the snapshot of the contents. Please share the snapshot.

            Thanks and Regards,
