When you put pen to paper to sign your name to a contract, personal check, or credit card receipt, it’s the equivalent of saying “I consent to this.” Your unique handwriting (or, in my case, unique scrawl) serves as the confirmation that you—not someone else—have signed the document.
When you enter the realm of digital documents, the options for signing become a bit more complex. Some companies accept Acrobat’s digital signatures, but some are uncomfortable with anything that doesn’t look like tasteful blue-black ink. I’ll show you how to sign a digital document to appease both camps.

It’s Small Business Week, and we have a handy tip for small business owners—who have to approve and sign a multitude of forms, invoices, and documents throughout any week. More often than not these days, forms are transmitted electronically; lots of people still sign these forms by printing out a copy, signing it with a pen, scanning it, and then emailing the scan back to the sender.
But there are easier ways.

Many PDFs that begin their lives in Adobe InDesign are later sent to Acrobat, where they are given calculated fields, buttons, bookmarks, and other special features. If, at some point in the document’s life cycle, you need to update the text, an image, or another design element in InDesign—do you have to rebuild the document in Acrobat all over again? Not if you know this week’s InDesign secret! Anne-Marie Concepciòn introduces a little known Acrobat command called Replace, which allows you to refresh the design layer without messing with the interactive features. Learn how this trick works in this week’s free video.
