Answers / Sign documents electronicallly
I've created a form in Adobe Acrobat X. The document includes a digital signature. Under the Security tab it is set so users are able to digitally sign the document.However, when I open the document using Adobe Reader, it does not allow for digital signatures. It says that the security is set agains this.What restrictions should I be changing so that users can digitally sign the form when using Adobe Reader?

HiIn order for them to sign your document and fill in a form in Adobe reader, you need to save the PDF as a reader enabled PDF. To do this, Save as – Reader Extendd PDF – Enable Additional FaeturesHope this helps?
Hi Sean. Nearly a year later, I'm experiencing the same issue in Adobe Acrobat XI Standard. I've saved the form as a Reader Extended PDF. When I save it, the page states "Enable Forms Fill-In and Save in Adobe Reader..." It doesn't mention sign. Sure enough, the form can be filled-in and saved in Adobe Reader, but it cannot be signed. Do you have any suggestions for this issue? Thanks

Hi,Here is a summary for deploying forms for Acrobat and Reader. It talks about LiveCycle Designer forms, but the basic principles apply for forms created in Acrobat. The form will need to be Reader Enabled in either Acrobat (Option 3 in the summary) or LiveCycle Reader Extensions ES3 (Option 4 in summary). Hope that helps,Niall
