Issue with ability to Sign

May 21, 2013 3:32 PM

I used adobe 8 proffesional to create a pdf form that I want digitally signed.


When I preview, I am able to add a digital signature and Document Properties/Security it indicates signature allowed.


When I open the document in Adobe Reader.  I cannot sign.


Document Properties/Security state Signing:  not allowed.   We are not using Echo.  Help!

    In order for digitally sign with Reader, the document has to be Reader-enabled. To do this in Acrobat 8, select: Advanced > Enable Usage Rights in Adobe Reader
