    Adobe Reader - Document
  • In the tool list, click the Open button from the Certificates tool.
    Adobe Reader - Tools
  • Adobe Reader will then go back to the Document tab with an added Certificates banner. On this banner, click Digitally Sign.

  • A pop-up window will now open. Click OK and follow the window's instructions: click and trace a rectangle (by keeping the click button pressed) to choose where your signature will be displayed. Release the click button to finish tracing the rectangle.

  • A second pop-up window will open to choose your signature certificate. Check the correct certificate and click Continue. If your certificate does not appear in the list, this means that is has not been installed properly: you will need to reinstall it before continuing with the signature.
