How do I add a certificate signature to a PDF?
What Is a Certificate Signature？
While an ordinary signature may suffice for everyday documents, when it comes to signing important documents like business contracts or legal agreements, a PDF certificate signature becomes an indispensable tool to ensure document security and legality.
Let's demonstrate the steps for creating a certificate signature using a formal purchase contract:
Click "Certificate Sign" > "Add Signature."
Enter the required information in the pop-up window, including your name, encryption Key Algorithm, usage, country, company, and department.
Set a password for the certificate signature (remember this password, as you'll need it for identity verification). The certificate signature can only be inserted into the document after successful authentication.
After setup, you can configure the certificate signing by:
Changing the signature style or replacing it with an image or drawing.
Adjusting the signature's dimensions.
Adding additional elements, timestamps, and reason.
Specifying the page range for batch signing multiple pages.
How Can I Ensure the Validity of My Certificate Signing?
Once a certificate signature is applied, you cannot move its position or edit the document. Any modification to the document content will invalidate the certificate signature.
Double-clicking the signature allows you to view signature details, showing the signed certificate information, signing time, and the signer's identity.
How Do I Manage My Certificate Signings?
Click the "Protect" tab > "Manage Certificate Signings."
You can import other certificates stored locally on your computer.
You can edit, delete, or export created certificates.
