Can I remove the Approved stamp from the favorites list?

I'm trying to remove the approved stamp so it's not the first thing I see when I click on my stamp tool icon. Can this be done.

Hi John,

Yes, you can remove a stamp from that top-most position. WIth that stamp selected navigate to the stamps menu and hover over Favorites- you will see a selction Remove the Current stamp from Favorites.
(edit- this works in earlier version of Acrobat, not X).

Edit Update- In Acrobat X, it appears that you cannot remove the Approved stamp from favorites. I even tried removing it from the Acrobat X User settings in the registry and it keeps coming back- this is in my opinion a BUG :(

Hope this helps,

It’s easy to remove the “Approved” stamp from the Favorites list on the Stamp pull-down menu in Acrobat.

1) Go to: C\Program Files x86\Adobe\Acrobat10.0\Acrobat\plug_ins\Annotations\Stamps\ENU

2) Copy the “StandardBusiness” PDF file.

3) Paste the copy of the “StandardBusiness” PDFfile on your Desktop (this is a temporary location).

4) Open the copy of the “StandardBusiness” PDF filefrom your Desktop.

5) Delete Page 1 (the “Approved” stamp page).

6) Save and close the copy of the“StandardBusiness” PDF file.

7) Copy the “StandardBusiness” PDF file from yourDesktop (the one you modified).

8) Go to: C\Program Files x86\Adobe\Acrobat10.0\Acrobat\plug_ins\Annotations\Stamps\ENU

9) DELETE the existing “StandardBusiness” PDF file from that folder.

10) Paste the “StandardBusiness” PDF file you copiedfrom your Desktop.

11) Close Acrobat.

12) Reopen Acrobat – the “Approved” stamp will begone from your Favorites list!

13) By the way, the “Approved” stamp will, also, begone.

14) You can, then, DELETE the “StandardBusiness” PDF filefrom your Desktop.
