I have a PDF of an author agreement form. I am unable to add an e-signature from a separate PDF file (cut/paste to form).
When I click on the signature box, I get the 'Add Digital ID' pop-up with 3 options, one of which is to use an existing file. The other 2 options don't apply. When I select this option and then 'Browse' for the file, the pop-up window looks for a PFX file and the e-sig is a PDF file. I cannot re-save the file as a PFX file; that option is not given.
QUESTION: How do I add an e-sig to the signature bar of this Adobe Acrobat document?
It sounds like a graphic of your signature is in the PDF file and this is different that the PFX file. The PFX file is an existing digital ID file on your system, which is encrypted and stores a secure certificate. If you don't have an existing digital ID, I would create a new one in Acrobat X. Then once you've created this, you can add the PDF file as the appearance on your digital signature. Here is a Quick Tip that explains how to add your PDF as the appearance on your digital signature.
Thank you. I’ll take a look at this.
