In a question here at Experts Exchange, a member asked how to create a signature in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (the free Reader product, not the paid, full Acrobat product). The member requested step-by-step instructions. This 5-minute Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorial provides detailed steps showing how to do it.

Video Steps

1. Open the PDF file and view the Tools


Open the PDF file with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.

Click either:

the View>Tools>Fill & Sign>Open menu

or:

the sideways triangle on the right side to open the Tools panel.

Step1

2. Run the Fill & Sign tool


If you used the first method in Step 1, the Fill & Sign tool will be open.

If you used the second method in Step 1, click the Fill & Sign tool in the Tools panel to open it.

Either way, you'll have this:

Step2

3. Click the sign tool, which is the pen tip


Click the tip of the pen, which brings up the Add Signature and Add Initials choices.

Click Add Signature.

Step3

4. Select Type or Draw or Image


Click the Type or Draw or Image icon (default is Type).

Enter your signature, depending on the choice you made above.

Step4

5. Place your signature


Position the mouse on the page and left-click to place the signature.

Use the sizing handle in the lower right corner, if desired, to size the signature.

Step5

6. To edit/change signature, delete it and create new one


There is no way to edit/change the signature, so delete it and create a new one, if needed.

Click the minus sign to delete it, then start over at Step 3.

Step6

7. Save the file with the signature


After placing the signature, do a File>Save or Save As to save the file with your signature.
