    I am a new employee. I have a W4 I need to sign. I have Adobe Acrobat DC Pro. After watching this video, I created and now have a digital signature (thanks to you), but when I go to digitally sign the Signature line, there is no red little line in the upper left corner, thus I can’t actually sign it…. any advice?

    How can one add a roll over pop-up type definition or explanatory note to a text word or phrase for clarification that only pops up when the operator rolls over the selected text with mouse? (Not sticky note – or otherwise visible)

    In the case that I want to send a document over to a person for them to digitally sign, for instance, say I draft a letter of commitment to an owner of a design firm for a grant application, who I just need to type there name at the end or digitally sign. As I am making it convenient and fast for the letter to be sent back to me. Is this legally okay? I notice that the tutorials usually have it where the person creating the digital signature field is the one signing the document.

    Thank you for the quick response. Yes the word document was converted to a pdf, I do not want to change it to a form. In the DC version it seems to want to convert to a form for the signature box. Is there a way around that?
    Thank you

    Hi there – I have been updated to Adobe DC and have a word document that I DO NOT want to turn into a form – just add a signature drop down – similar to what you created in Digital Signature – problem is I am not able to find a way to just add the box? Pleas help as I have multiple documents that will need signatures. Kind regards D

    OMG thank you. I was frantic trying to apply for a grant and this was perfect. Even the music at the beginning calmed me down.Cheers!
