Get from App Store

Electronically signing PDF documents has expanded a significant increase over the past few years and many people are opting electronic signing to avoid the annoyance of first printing out the document, signing it and finally skimming it. The understandable reason for electronic signing is, to verify the genuineness of the document and to confirm the identity of the signers. In this article, I will tell you how to sign PDF on Mac with PDFelement 6 for Mac.

Although Preview in the Mac provides a good option to electronically sign the document but it is far away from being perfect. For example, you can only use the camera or trackpad to sign a document and there are no options to type the signature or use the already taken image as your signature. Sometimes, the camera app is not working properly and if you have a lot of documents to sign, it will not be less than a pesky task. So PDFelement 6 will be your best choice to sign PDF without Preview.
