Per an Adobe web page, users with the reader should be able to digitally SIGN a PDF but it's not working here. It seems that only users with the Standard edition can SIGN a PDF.

Here's what their webpage says:

"Why should I upgrade to Adobe Reader 8?
A. Adobe Reader 8 enables you to securely view, print, search, sign, and verify the authenticity of Adobe PDF files."

Is there a trick to Reader to sign a PDF?

Acrobat must be used to create the document, with the form fields for
and data input and a signature field. Then Reader can be used to open
the document, fill in the form fields, sign the document. As Adam
noted, an ID must be created inside Reader before the first time a
digital signature is used.

Stated more simply .. Reader can only sign a document that has had a
signature field already defined. The signature field must be defined
using one of the non-free Adobe products (or something else??).

Hope this helps.
