I fill and sign a doc using Adobe. However, when I require a second signature on the document, and email said document, the recipient cannot even fill or sign on the page. Is Adobe required to sign PDFs that were signed using Adobe?

Hi,

 

I don't know if it is a "technical" requirment to use the same software but I would always recommend being in the same family of software, so if you are signing using Adobe (Acrobat or Reader) then all participants should use that family. I know there are some third party tools that support signing, but they may implement it a different way.

 

Regards

 

Malcolm

So what I am getting is Adobe locks the page so others must use the service to edit/sign the documents as well? I dont think that is very convienent. I cant expect everyone to use Adobe. I guess I will have to try somethig else.
