I have a pdf with javacripts enabled, when I add a signture field, I recieve this error when clicking on signature field:

The document cannot be signed in its current state. Please save the document, close it, reopen it, and then attempt to sign again.

 

I have tired in both Acrobat and Acrobat reader.

I must have javascripts enabled for form to acutally function. All security settings are off.

Have tried multiple ways to save .

If anyone has encountered this error and has a fix, please help!

That reminds me of this stackoverflow question. Thus, you may want to check the JavaScript in your document and re-write it not to use such event handler changes as were the culprit there.
As a work-around try filling-in the form with JavaScript enabled, saving the file, disabling JavaScript in Acrobat, loading the saved file, and signing it. But that work-around only makes sense if you have to fill that form but once.
