Creating Signable PDFs

Note: This documentation refers to Acrobat Pro DC 2017.

By default a PDF saved in Acrobat Pro cannot be signed by users of Adobe Reader.  To ensure the PDF can be signed by all users follow the instructions below.

Extending Signing Capabilities

When creating a PDF form in Adobe Acrobat Pro finish editing the form and back it up (save it with another name).  Once it's features have been extended for Adobe Reader, the form can no longer be fully edited.
  1. File -> Save As Other -> Reader Extended PDF - Enable More Tools


  2. A  window appears with a list of features that will become available when the document is opened with Adobe Reader. Select "Save Now" to save the form.
