Answers / Sign and Send PDFs
When I open a document to sign (in Reader) under the SIGN tab I am getting an error that "the security settings on this document prevent adding text and/or placing a signature on it from Reader". I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong or the setting(s) I am missing when I create the PDF in Acrobat X Pro before sending to someone with Reader.Please advise.Thanks!

Does the PDF have the "Extended Reader Rights" applied to it?There is a signing service provided by Adobe for users with Reader. Adobe also provides a creation service for Reader users.The product is the free Adobe Reader. You get more features when you purchase the Adobe Acrobat product.
