        Two questions: When will the Adobe Reader mobile app support AIP? In my first tests I found, that it is not able to open AIP protected PDF files, which are edited with foxit reader (protected with AIP Client in Windows, after that added comments and marks and saved them in Foxit). Adobe Reader starts after double click on that file but doesn't display the document and no dialog will be displayed (no Azure AD Authentication dialog or error message). Nothing happens after that. Is this a known problem?

        3 months later still no update? Summer is technically over tomorrow. Was their a preview?

        This blocks a lot of uptake on Azure information protection.

        Talking to Microsoft about they points us to Adobe.
        If there are technicalities or delays please advise. Thanks

        I recently learned that a new (?) setting is available to allow the AIP client to generate 32000-1 compliant protected PDFs (instead of PPDF): https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/information-protection/rms-client/client-admin-guide-customizations
        however, current version of Adobe Reader will only show a short text that you will need to open with a compatible PDF reader and point to aka.ms/aippdf.
        Has Adobe already announced that the standard reader will support this format soon? preview downloadable? thanks!

        Any update on this one?

        Just working with the new OME and seen that PDF's don't encrypt.
        Also we use Esign from Adobe, is that also included with this?

        Do we have any timing on when this support in Reader/Acrobat Pro will be released? Have a customer that is really looking forward to this.

        Im working through an issue at this stage, as a result im having to use the adobe option.
        is there any update on how likely this will be?

        Hey Adam,
        it's time to put the smackdown on Adobe and get them to finally approve this!
        Like others, it's hard for us to force clients and users to use particular PDF viewers, when most have standardized on some variant of Acrobat, or some other 3rd party PDF viewer that does not yet support AIP.

        Thanks
        Craig

        This is truly important for Swiss Re as we cannot easily switch to one of the other PDF readers (we depend on Adobe Reader as we have some other solutions depending on it)

        This is critical control for the product to limit 3rd party software to hook in and access protected object and then save unprotected.
