Stamp sign on a PDF form

Hi,

I have an issue to "stamp" sign some PDF forms.

Adobe Reader XI (and Acrobat) sometimes let me "Place initials", "Draw my signature" or "Place an image" and sometimes not: items are greyed out.

I cannot figure what make the difference between signable forms and not-signable forms…

There is a screengrab here: http://cl.ly/ZLyy


Please help, this driving me crazy.

This might happen if the file is already signed, in which case you can't edit it any further, only apply an additional signature (if there's a signature field) or certification.

No, these forms are not signed, not protected and not Reader-enabled.

Some are recently made by me…

Here is a sample to download: http://cl.ly/ZLHf/Projet%20Bulletin%20A.pdf

Can you share one such file?

Sorry, I edited my previous post when you're posting yours.

I had a look at the file, and I see what you mean. It's very strange because the Initials are just a stamp and you can add other stamps to the file without problem... I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions as to why this is happening or how to fix it.

You can report it as a bug to Adobe, here: https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform

Thanks Gilad.

OK, fixed.

1- Adding a digital signature form field disable other sign features. So now I know what makes the difference.

2- This file was created by another person and was already signed for testing purpose, and after the sign field was removed, re-created and son on… So I reminded him to always leave the original untouched and to always create a copy for testing.
