Sign in to Acrobat Web at https://documentcloud.adobe.com with your Adobe ID and password, or with your social (Facebook or Google) account.
Use Adobe Fill & Sign service to fill out and sign forms online easily. Sign your form by typing or drawing your signature or using an image. Send your completed forms to others and store the forms securely in Adobe Document Cloud.
Adobe Fill & Sign supports forms of the following file types:
You can upload a maximum of 100 files, and the size of each file must be 100 MB or less.
In the top navigation bar, click Sign > Fill & Sign.
Select a PDF that you want to fill and sign using one of the following ways, and then click Continue:
Password protected PDFs are not supported. You must remove the password before uploading PDFs.
The selected PDF document is prepared as a form and displayed in the browser window with the respective tools and options. Fill or add text in the form by clicking Add Text in the toolbar. Click at the place in the document where you want to add the text, and then start typing.
Use the field toolbar to make appropriate changes:
Add annotations or symbols: Annotations tools are displayed in the toolbar - Crossmark, Checkmark, Circle, Line, and Dot. You can use these annotation tools to fill in check boxes and radio buttons, as well as use to circle, underline or strikethrough text.
Click an annotation in the toolbar to select it, and then click the location in the form where you want to place the annotation. (Each click places the selected annotation at the respective location on the form.) To stop pasting annotations, click Add Text tool in the toolbar.
To adjust the field position, select the annotation and use the arrow keys on your keyboard. Use the Shift key along with the arrow keys to precisely position the field.
Resize the first annotation you place to fit the check box or radio button in the document, and the next annotations you add will be of the same size and will fit the rest of the box or circle fields.
Click the Sign icon in the toolbar, and then choose whether you want to add your signature or just initials.
If you have already added signatures or initials, they are displayed as options to choose from.
Select your added signature or initials from the Sign options, and then click at the place in the form where you want to add your signature. Skip to the next step.
If you are signing for the first time, you see the Signature or Initials panel. Below is an example of the Signature panel.
Type: Type your name in the field.
Draw: Draw your signature in the field using your mouse, touch pad, or touch screen. To draw again or correct any mistake, use the Clear button.
Type your name in the Enter Your Name field in the footer, if the field is not auto-populated with your name.
Image: Browse and select an image of your signature.
To use an image as your signature:
Save: When this check box is selected, the added signature is saved to your profile for reuse.
Delete Signature: To delete your saved signature from the profile, click the Delete icon next to the signature.
Click Apply, and then click at the place in the form where you want to place the signature or initial.
To move the placed signature or initial, click the field to highlight it and then use the arrow keys. To delete the field, use the options in field toolbar. To resize, use the blue grab handle at the right as shown in the image below.
Once a form has been signed and sent, the data you added in Fill & Sign (text fields, annotations and signatures) will no longer be editable. You can add additional data, but cannot remove or modify the data added before the form was sent.
After you have filled and signed the form, you can share the form with others. To share the form, follow the steps below:
In the Fill and Sign toolbar, click Next.
Send your file using any of the following methods:
Send a link of the non-editable copy of the filled and signed form. The copy is certified with Adobe Sign. Recipients won’t be able to modify the copy easily; any modification makes the certification invalid.
Click Get A Link, and then click Create Link.
Anyone with access to the link can view, but cannot make any changes to the document. Click Copy Link, and share it with others in an email.
The detailed tracking information is available for files shared using a personalized link to individuals. The copy is certified with Adobe Sign. Recipients won’t be able to modify the copy easily; any modification makes the certification invalid.
Click Send A Copy. Enter the email address of whoever you’d like to receive the file.
The Subject and Message fields are just like the ones you use for sending an email and appear to your recipients in the same way. Enter desired information.
Click Send. Your recipients get an email notifying them that the document is shared with them.
