To be able to sign a PDF document, it is necessary to have a digital certificate installed on your computer, such as the idCAT Certificate. Remember that the idCAT Mobile is not a digital certificate.

With the idCAT certificate installed on your computer, open the PDF with Adobe Acrobat (Reader or DC) and follow these steps:

1. Go to "Tools" or "All tools" and select "Certificates" or "Use a certificate":
