    Is there not a app to where you can sign something and covert it to a pdf file and put in on as your signature?

    The part where I believe im having a problem is that after its saved from gopher it says its says in the properties "signing - not allowed". I don't see anywhere in gopher where there is an option to change this. The customer returned it with a signature so I must be missing something unless its a photoshop kinda thing.

    It could be the version of Adobe you have. You might have to save the PDF in Gopher and then reopen it with Adobe to modify it. Just a thought.

    Yeah it looks like it takes their online service or the more expensive Adobe to mod or create a sig, Adobe reader alone wont do it.

    Use open Office.org's writer program. Great word processor program. It also allows you to save files as PDF formats. It is a free download.

    Thanks, I will check that out. I tried to pint,sign and scan but hit a brick wall trying to turn the scanned one into a Pdf despite being to scan straight to Adobe.

    kind of a round about way to do it but there are several iPhone/Ipad pdf apps that will let you "sign" or draw on top of the pdf. I also believe the built in mac pdf reader will allow this
