In Adobe Acrobat Pro, is it possible to make a shortcut to function -> Use certficate -> Sign, on the taskbar? In the free version, I think this is impossible.

You mean create a macro?  Yes and no. 

There's no built in method for this in Acrobat. But you can write an Acrobat automation script to do it.

Thank you for your response.
What I mean is to add a button on the taskbar so that I don't have to go to the menu every time and click unnecessarily, because I often sign documents that I am looking at.

I need this information to know if it makes sense to buy the Pro version.

Yes, an automation script can place a button on the "Add-ons" tool bar and can sign the form with a certificate.

You can read about about automation scripting here (there's a nice informational video)

I also believe this is possible to do in Acrobat Reader. But to be sure you need to check the Acrobat JS reference for the relevant functions.
