Temporary Beachball in Adobe PIN Field

Good day.

I have a macro the works fine but has a section that gives me a 15-20 second beachball.

The macro clicks through all the steps to digitally sign Adobe documents using an external certificate and smart card reader, e.g., CAC signatures on Army documents.

This happens when the macro is typing in text into a smart card PIN field.

If it didn't beachball it would blast through batches of 20 documents in under a minute! But now it takes about 2-3 minutes.
