Problem with PDF

 
 
Reply Fri 9 Dec, 2016 01:14 pm
I have a document by email which requires a witness to sign. The contract is by PDF. There is a place at the end for a witness to sign. But I cannot find a way to sign it and I cannot print it. If I download it it goes to Adobe or another source I downloaded. Neither allows me to print it out or alter by signing it. I don't want to subscribe to Adobe for about 70 dollars. Do any of you have a solution to the problem?

@edgarblythe,

is there a specific reason why they didn't mail you the document on a piece of paper?

@edgarblythe,
Do you have Adobe software installed? If so open the file and check the toolbar on the right of the screen. There should be options there for "add signature from file: and "add signature" You can separately create a handwritten signatire in a Word Document and simply paste it on the PDF file with the first option.

I hope this helps.

@georgeob1,
My computer came with Adobe, but they want too much money to activate the service. $69.99.

@Region Philbis,
A publishing company sent me a contract using PDF. I was hoping I would not need to present them with a problem by contacting them about it.

@edgarblythe,

you could take a screen shot of it, and then print the image...

are you on a PC or a mac?

Do you mean the document itself is secured so it won't print, or is there some other reason? Have you got the (free) Adobe Reader installed?

@edgarblythe,
Even with Adobe it can be a pain - they change most of the details everey time the upgrade the sdoftware. Can you simply print the contract and usr the mail - it might be less frustratying?

Good luck

@georgeob1,
I tried every trick I could find to print it. No luck. What worked cost me $6 for a month service. It is the link CI gave me. After spending more than half a day wrestling with it, his link got it signed and sent within a half hour.

I used up all the free in Adobe at least three years ago.

@edgarblythe,

hold down the Ctrl key and click the Print Screen key.

that takes a screen shot of whatever is on your screen -- it puts it on your clipboard.

next open Windows Paint, paste image, and crop as necessary...

Adobe Reader is always free, for everyone. I don't understand what you mean.

I mean when I bought this stinking EMachine, it had a free trial of Adobe. After I used that up, it refused to allow me to use it unless I cough up about $70 per year.
Also, it came with Works, but I was informed I would be subjected to endless advertisements if I activated it. Since I already had Works on a disc I deleted their version and installed mine.

Adobe what? Adobe is a software house. It has numerous products. Adobe Reader is one. It is free to everyone, regardless of what your PC maker says.
