Hi Basem,
I'm working on an EE video Micro Tutorial for you that will show detailed, step-by-step instructions. I've already started the project — should take me an hour or so to finish it and then publish it here at EE. I'll post back here with its link when it's published. Regards, Joe

You're welcome, Basem. I'm glad that you found it useful. I'll appreciate it if you endorse the video by clicking the thumbs-up icon at the end of the Video Steps.

If you mean form fields, the answer is yes — the free Adobe Reader allows you to fill in form fields in a PDF form. However, you can't create form fields in the free Adobe Reader — for that, you need the non-free Adobe Acrobat, or PDF products from other companies, such as Nuance's Power PDF, among many others.

There could be many reasons for that, which will require separate troubleshooting, but it has nothing to do with your original question here. So I suggest that you close this question about how to create signatures and post a new question with the Save/Save As problem. But I can assure you that Reader DC has the ability to fill in a PDF form and save it. I just tested it on IRS Form 1040 with Reader DC Version 2017.012.20098 — worked perfectly. If you're unable to do a Save/Save As, it's because of some other reason, such as an issue with the document itself, a permissions/restrictions issue, etc. In any case, please post a new question on it.
