I have a PDF document that I need to sign digitally, but whenever I choose FILL AND SIGN, I am unable to do so as it is saying that "The author of this form has specified the field which you can fill. Click on any field to start filling form." I cannot paste my signature as well. I think the form is also secured. Please help. THANK YOU.

Hi Ellery_tan,

 

Thanks for reaching out. as described above, you are unable to sign digitally sign PDF, correct?

 

Have you got the PDF which is already signed, and trying to sign it with your signature?

 

Its a design behavior, once the PDF is signed it gets locked for further editing. You wont be able to edit, once the PDF is signed the document becomes read-only and no further changes are allowed; even a signature can't be added in the document.

 

If you're the only one signer, you can remove your signature and work on the document. If the document is signed by others, you can request the initiator to share an unsigned copy or the source document with you.

 

As stated above, the form is secured, you need to contact the author/creator of the pdf to get the access to edit the file.

 

For more information please use the help article - https://helpx.adobe.com/in/acrobat/kb/edit-signed-PDF.html

 

 

Hope it helps

 

Regards

Amal
