I'd like to electronically sign an MS Word document so I can send it over to someone without having to print it and manually sign it.
I have no idea where to begin with this, though. How do you go about it?
Thanks in advance!
If you don't have an image of your signature but have a tablet or a multitouch trackpad on the Mac (or, I suppose, the Magic Trackpad) you can look at Autograph
I usually 'print' to PDF, and use PDFPenPro to place my signature image, then flatten the file so the signature image can't be reused. I also then sign the document with GPG, but that might be more than you need.
P.S. I would be careful with embedding an image of your signature, because there's not a lot preventing the other party from using that signature in other documents etc. While I use a picture as well, I place it over a line (wherever the signature line would be in the document) AND flatten the PDF, so it can't be easily copied.
