When I try to recopy a signed agreement to create another one, Adobe Acrobat says the document has already been signed and does not let me edit it, but saves it as another document. How do I remove signatures from a saved copy?
Question as answered When I try to recopy a signed agreement to create another one Adobe Acrobat says the document has already been signed and does not let me edit it but saves it as another document. How do I remove signatures from a saved copy? Let me separate three concepts Modifying a PDF document after it has been digitally signed and locked. Deleting the digital signature field from a PDF document. ordered-list For #1 observe that when you digitally sign a PDF document with Adobe Acrobat Acrobat offers to lock the document after signing. If the signer asked Acrobat to lock the document then the Acrobat does so. The result is a PDF file which is protected by cryptography from modification. By design it is virtually impossible to modify such a file without making it invalid unless you unlock it first. This is desirable. It is part of why a digitally signed document is trustworthy. In order to unlock the PDF document you need the same private key that the signer used. If you can get the signer to unlock the document you are out of luck. For more on this see the Acrobat help FAQ Edit a signed PDF | FAQ s . For #2 if you are the only signer of a PDF document you can use Acrobat to clear the digital signature. As the edit a signed PDF FAQ above says If youre the only one signer you can remove the signature and then work on the document or edit the source document. To remove your signature right-click the signature and then choose Clear Signature. If you are not the only signer of a PDF document then you are probably out of luck. Maybe you and the other signers can work together to remove your signatures in the reverse order of signing. Again this difficulty is desirable. For #3 once a PDF document is unlocked and the digital signature is cleared then the digital signature field remains in the document. It is a form field and you remove it the same way you remove any other form field. Select the form field you want to delete then right-click and select Delete from the pop-up menu. For more on deleting form fields see the Adobe help document PDF form field basics s .

How do you embed fonts in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?
Open the Preflight panel (search for it in the tools) switch to Fixups (Wrench icon on the Profiles tab) fonts in the search field. Use the found Embed Fonts italic fixup as is or in conjunction with a Subset Fonts italic fixup to minimise the document size. BTW if youre looking for an answer in order to make your document fully editable there a caveat Acrobat Pro will only let you edit that PDF if all fonts are physically present and installed on the destination system. For legal reasons not technical. So fully ding a font will not necessarily result in using that font being editable in that font in Acrobat. This is Acrobat-specific unlike e.g. PitStop Pro as other software vendors like Enfocus haven been legally burned in relevant scenarios by font foundries (yet;-)
