    Electronic signature in merged documents?

      I am trying to create a new document using multiple files. Some of these files contain electronic signatures. Can the electronic signatures be preserved in the merged document?

          A digital signature applies to an entire document. If you somehow combine documents that contain digital signatures, any signatures cannot be verified since the document to which they apply has been changed.

           

          You can add documents to a PDF as file attachments (aka embedded files), which is what you do when you create a portfolio. The individual documents can later be extracted and any signatures can be verified.
