I have received a document that has been digitally signed. I need to apply my signature to countersign the contract. When I click 'Fill and Sign' on the right, I do not see my normal options for pasting in my signature. Is there a way to countersign a document like this? Or am I stuck printing it off and manually signing it. I have saved these PDFs as a Word file before, only to convert back into PDF. There has to be a way to get this done, but I am to much of a novice in Adobe. I have searched for a solution but have come up with nothing.

I appreciate any advice or help anyone can offer, thank you.

Hi Brad Qualls,

Could you please let us know the adobe application you are using and also the OS version on your system?

To digitally sign a document you need to select the certificates option from Tools.

You can navigate to tools pane and type " Certificates" in the search box. And then select "digital sign" option .

Please refer this article : Digital IDs in Acrobat DC  and  Certificate-based signatures, Adobe Acrobat DC

Let us know if this helps.

Regards

Sarojini

Thank you Sarojini,

I was missing the Certificate button on the right side of the screen. I usually just paste my signature in from a png file and fill in the rest of the information with text. I was able to create a digital signature and add the appropriate png.

Thank you!

What do I do if I don't want to scrawl my signature on the line - I'd rather use the digital signature that's already saved in Acrobat Pro DC.
