    When you say you can't apply labels to your PDF files, is there no option to select the label? Are you having any issues with labeling PDF files that aren't signed?

    Typically when a PDF file is signed that document can't be edited. However, would you be able to provide some more details regarding your issue? i.e. what doc are you following to set up your labels, what're you seeing, etc..

    I was able to find some documents that should help walk you through adding labels to a PDF doc.

    Are you implying that using the Adobe Acrobat Reader Integration with Microsoft Information Protection, one cannot apply a Sensitivity Label to a signed document? It's unintuitive if Adobe and Microsoft want to imply that digitally signed documents cannot be protected using Microsoft's own MIP labels, when signed documents demand higher degree of sensitivity.

    Secondly, isn't it contradicting to term it "by design" and "issue" at the same time? Is there an indication of this being recognised in a backlog or being on a roadmap anytime soon?
