    How to enter 2nd Electronic Signature?

    hasaneasyday

      We recently instituted electronic signature for our Engineers using Acrobat X Pro and a third party certification. The plan is for the first engineer to sign the PDF document and email it to the second engineer for his signature and approval. The system works well when we convert a Word document to PDF, which shows the PDF Producer (File => Properties) as Adobe PDF Library. However, when we use an interactive Acrobat document generated by our publications department, it shows the PDF Producer as Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES 9.0. With the latter document, the first engineers can sign the document, but in the "Sign Document" dialogue box the "Lock Document After Signing" option is not available. As the result, the document is locked by the first person who signed it and the second person cannot sign it.

      Is there an option to select to enable the second person to sign the document if it is generated by Adobe LifeCycle Designer?

          I suspect you're dealing with a dynamic XFA form and attempting to place an additional signature, as opposed to signing a preexisting digital signature field. It should work if the form has as many digital signature fields as will be needed. It won't otherwise. Note that if the form is a dynamic XFA but it doesn't need to be (e.g., because you're not adding or autoexpanding fields at run-time), then you might be able to create it as a static XFA form and then users will be able to place as many signatures as is needed.

            George,

            Thank you for your reply. We ended up creating actual signature fields in Adobe LiveCyle on the documents and routed them to our engineers for their signatures. It worked great.
