I wish to make a digital ID for a PDF document, however I cannot find out how to do it. Online instructions do not work with the newest version of adobe reader and I would very much like to know how exactly I create one and how to exchange digital ID's too, if possible. This is going to be done in an effort to prevent the sharing of a PDF. Thank you.

Hi Natasha,I notice you mention Adobe Reader, you cannot create Digital IDs in Adobe Rreader, you need Acrobat ( the paid for software) for that.If you have Acrobat then you can use George's instructions.Hope this helps,DimitriWindJack Solutionswww.pdfscripting.comwww.windjack.com
Dimitri, the same thing is available in Reader for setting up a digital ID. Reader is not able to sign a non-enabled document however.

My bad- I should have checked Reader XI first, thanks for the correction George!
