How to enable/disable "Sign" feature in Adobe Reader X 10.1.4

09/26/2012 20095 views

I am packaging Adobe Reader X 10.1.0 msi upon which I am applying 10.1.4 patch. "Sign" feature was introduced in 10.1.3. I need to keep the sign feature intact, however, I need to disable "Send signed document" button which is powered by EchoSign. Would anyone be able to help on this. This is urgent as I have to finish the packaging activity today.

  • I have found that setting the following registry key removes the Sign panel and the link from the Online Features menu on application launch. Just need to locate the setting to remove the Adobe Online Features menu from startup too now.

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\(product name)\(version)\FeatureLockdown\cServices\ DWORD: bEnableSignPane = 0

Try Adding this Registry Key It disables all hosted Services 


HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\10.0\Workflows

bEnableAcrobatHS (dword : 0)

  • I don't want to disable Sign feature as a whole. I need to avoid users from uploading the document to Echosign by clicking on "Send Signed Document" button. I need to only lock down this button.

Have you tried customizing it with Adobe Customization Wizard. You can get an option there to disable it.
