    PDF signing signature file size increase in increment 3mb

    jt858

      Hello,

       

      Have anyone seen Adobe Reader digital signature insert and file increase from 85kb over over 3mb?  The current Adobe Reader use is 9.x and every time inserting PDF signature it changing the size largely.  The signature file less than 95kb.  Please let me know if you seen this and a fix for it.

       

      Thanks

          Please let me know the version of Adobe Reader installed on your system and your OS.

          Also, is this behavior happening for all PDFs which you sign or with a specific PDF only.

           

          Thanks

            Hi Ankit,

             

            Thanks for following up and the issue has been resolved since I found tips from the forum below.  The OS is WinXP Pro and current version Adobe Reader 9.4.6.  It work after de-select the option under preference so I’m good to go.  Maybe you can posted this on your site as “fixed” for those experience same issue as I’m.

            go to edit>preferences>security.

             

            click on advanced preferences then select the 'creation' tab.

             

            De-select 'Include signature's revocation status when signing'

             

            the extra data is the CRL list that gets embedded with the signature if the above preference has been selected.

             

            Thanks
