Hi I am trying to electronically sign a pdf file that says it allows signing in the permission details. The pen icon is there but the options to use it are grey. It's a long document and I'd really rather not print it all out just to sign it and then scan it back in.
I signed another document just like it right before, so my digital signature is saved on my computer.
In order for Reader to apply a digital signature, the document has to be Reader-enabled with the signature usage right applied. If it's not, you won't be able to apply a signature, regardless of the restriction settings. What does it say at the bottom when you select "File > Properties > Security"?
