Creating Adobe Digital Signatures

This year I updated to Adobe Acrobat 2017, which required me to replace a number of regularly-used tools with add-ons, apps or to find the new way of doing the old thing.

However, one thing that I had used regularly in the past, this year I rarely used: my Adobe digital signature. It was not until three quarters of the way through the year that I needed it for the first time, and I realised that I didn't know how to create one in the new system. I went looking.

Most of the Adobe practices are now cloud-based, requiring us to be logged into our software. I hadn't realised that I was not signed in, which caused me no end of difficulty in following the instructions, until I realised what the problem was. Once you're signed in, it is very easy.

To create a new digital signature, the process is as follows:
  • Ensure you are signed into your Adobe account
  • Go to the tools menu and search for "signature"
  • You will be routed to the "Fill & Sign" tools.
  • In the right-hand sidebar ensure your profile information has been entered, particularly your first and last names.
  • Click the sign icon on the toolbar (as shown in the illustration accompanying this post).
  • Add your signature image from its file location
  • Use the cross-hair cursor to position your signature on the page
  • Save the document.
And that's it.
