Sign a Document

EaseUS PDF Editor also makes it easy to sign documents electronically. This differs from traditional handwritten signatures, as digital signatures often contain additional information, such as the location, date & time of signature and the reason for signing.

To sign a PDF, please choose "Sign" tool from the top toolbar and then select “Place Signature” from the right menu bar. Next, hit "Drag New Signature Rectangle" button, click and drag your mouse to draw a rectangle on the page, and then release your mouse.


If you don't have a digital ID for signing, then you have to create a new ID with this program. To create a self-signed digital ID, choose "New ID" from the dropdown menu of "Sign As" and then select "A new digital ID I want to create now". Hit "Next" to continue and check both of the options when selecting where to store your self-signed digital ID. Once it's done, you can enter your identity information to generate a self-signed certificate.


After filling in the required information, you will be directed back to "Sign Document" window. From here, you can select a reason for signing and customize the signature's appearance. Lastly, hit "Sign" to confirm.

If you want to sign and certify your document, please select "Sign & Certify" from the right sidebar and choose the most desirable option you want. The following steps are the same as what was introduced above.
