When I receive digitally signed documents, I can add text on PDF with Adobe Reader XI with fill and sign tool. But adobe PRO DC does not allow me to do that. Is there a way to do that with PRO DC?

By @Bernd Alheit

This is too general. Depending on the kind of previous signatures - approval or certification, level of certification - certain changes are allowed to a signed document.

For example form fill-in or even arbitrary annotation changes may be allowed. Thus, Fill&Sign might indeed be an allowed change in the OP's case.

Adobe Acrobat DC can't change the document when it is already signed and locked.

Right. But did the OP say "locked"?
