TIP 144: Adding a Signature Field and Signing a Document

If you are the creator of a document, you can certify it with a digital signature, as shown in the previous tip. You can also sign a document as part of a review process, specifying whether you are the author or have reviewed the document, and so on.

Make It Valid—and Quick

If your work includes a lot of signature validation, it can be time-consuming to repeatedly choose commands to validate a signature or signatures in each document you open. Instead, set a preference to have signatures validated automatically when the document opens. Choose Edit > Preferences (Acrobat > Preferences) and click the Security category in the list. Click the Verify signatures when the document is opened check box at the top of the dialog and click OK to close the preferences. Next time you open a document that contains signatures, they are verified automatically.
