Fill & Sign a PDF form

Filling out PDFs and signing them can be done directly from Adobe’s own reader app.

  1. If you don’t already have Adobe Reader, it’s available for free from get.adobe.com/reader and can be used with Windows, Mac, and Android operating systems.
  2. Get the full Adobe Reader program, not the app.
  3. Then use the Tool  Edit & Fill Option to place TEXT on the PDF.
  4. *Note: Depending on your view and version you will see the Tools menu up top or on the right side Nav top. Click. 
  5. Then click Fill & Sign. You’ll may also see Edit PDF in menu options.  The Edit option will require a paid version of the program but Fill & Sign can also be done in the free reader version.
  6. FILL will allow you to type Text when you choose it from the top FILL & SIGN tool bar in the fill & sign mode.
  7. The toolbar also has a SIGN button on it up top that will allow you to sign text that looks like a signature rather the typed text of the FILL mode.
  8. Works great For adding text in PDFs and forms that have fillable fields can also be filled in with this mode.
