I have a form filled out and signed by a other person. When I get the form and enable all features it clears the form of all the data that the employee filled out. There is no popup stating why it was cleared. I just need to be able to sign this form with all of the employees info on it and their signature.

Can you tell us why you want to "enable all features" after the document has been signed? There's likely a better way to achieve what you want. The more information you provide about your intended workflow the better.

I need to enable the features so that I can sign the form after they have
signed it.

No, you don't. You just need to add two signature fields in advance.

"Enable all features" needs to be done before the file is sent out. It doesn't make sense to do it on a filled-in file...

Also, this is no longer necessary at all, unless the users have a very old version of Adobe Reader. The current version can save filled-in forms without these rights applied to the file.

If you want to sign a docuement after someone else has signed, you can either add another digital signature field to go along with the one that the user signs, or include the document as an attachement to a different one that you sign/certify. The first option is typical practice.

I should clarify that I meant that you should add the additional signature field before you send the form out to be used. That way the signature field will be available when the form is returned to you.
