Hi, 

 

I am having issues unlocking a PDF once receipients e-sign the document. I don't place any security restrictions when preparing the document but once it is signed and certified the document locks. How do I prevent this from happening?? 

 

If I choose to edit the PDF after it's been signed - I uncheck the "restrict editing" check box but it asked for a password even though I didn't set one... I'm hoping someone can help. 

 

Thank you.

Editing a PDF file after it's signed will invalidate the signature.

Hi Alejandra,

 

Thank you for reaching out.

 

Could you please confirm how exactly you are sending the document for signature?

Are you using the send for a signature feature? Please share the complete workflow.

 

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi
