Numerous enhancements to security features such as Protected Mode and others are part of this release.

EchoSign integration

  • Acrobat and Reader now intelligently detect if a document may need to be signed. On successful detection, a document message bar appears with a button “Open Sign Pane” which on clicking opens the right-hand Sign Pane.
  • Signature appearances can now be imported through the user’s webcam. Reader saves the signature for future use in signing workflows.
  • Save a Copy: Allows the user to save the file locally or in cloud. The file will be renamed based on whether user signs the document or not.
  • Send via Email: Allows users to upload the document to the EchoSign server where they can fill-in details and send the signed document.
  • Send via Fax: Same as the Send via Email option.
  • Get Others to Sign: Enables users to send documents that need signing to others through the EchoSign service.
  • The dialog which asks the user if they want to save the signed document is removed, thereby streamlining the signing process.

Tools Pane

  • Tools pane performance is improved.
  • The Tools Pane is open by default and the user’s selected state is saved across sessions.

PDF viewing

Added support for the Japanese Postal Code barcode.

  • When using Export PDF, Create PDF and Send Now services, the user can now choose Open from online account > Acrobat.com.
