Signature Not Verified

The Adobe Reader can validate the digital signature on digitally signed PDF files. It can do that automatically when a PDF document is opened in the viewer. However, it is a configuration setting that determines if it does that or if you should do it manually.

The image above shows what it may look like if the signature isn’t validated. You can right-click it and select Validate Signature to make Adobe Reader perform the validation.

Save to same path

Users often ask if they can make the printer save the PDF document in the same folder as the original printed document.

This is not possible because the printer does not know anything about the original document. It only processes a print job which does not contain any information about the path of the original.
