Hi,
I understand that i can use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to create documents to be filled in and signed.  But that there is a limitation on the amount of documents.  

I cannot find how many documents one can create with this version.

This can be documents created with Word, Excel or other tools, which are saved as a PDF document.

Now i want to send them to my 3rd parties and let the sign them.

 

Acrobat Reader DC has an option to send this document to my third parties to fill in (name, date, email) and sign them.
When i compare Acrobat Reader DC with Acrobat Pro DC, i can see that the option tot fill in and sign is 'limited'.

Therefore i want to sign what this limitaion exactly is...

In Adobe Reader DC, there is an option 'Fill in and Sign'.  This allows you to add fields to be filled in and add a signature, using Adobe Sign.

 

I have to login to Acrobat but before creating yet another account, i want to know the limitations of this feature.

The answer is zero. You can't create any PDF files using the free Reader. You need Acrobat or a subscription to the Adobe Document Cloud online services to be able to do it.

That's not what you wrote, though... You wrote (I added the bold formatting):

> I understand that i can use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to create documents

And that's not possible. If you meant to take existing documents and sign them, then yes, that is possible, and there's no limit to the number of files you can do it to, as far as I know.

Oke, sorry for confusion.

 

I meant that i use Reader to sent a PDF
- including 'fill in' fiels and a signature field
hence the sentence 'create a document'.

On the Adobe page above, it is stated that one can use Reader but there is a remark 'Limite'.  So i d'like to know what this limitation is...
