Verifying signatures with Adobe Reader

If you want to check the validity of the signatures independent of Ledgy, you can do so with Adobe Acrobat Reader.

How to verify the signatures

You can verify the signature in Adobe Reader by opening the Signature Panel:

Open the document and click on Choose View > Show/Hide > Navigation Panes > Signatures, or click the Signature Panel button in the document message bar.

Note: You can right-click a signature field in the Signatures panel to do most signature-related tasks, including adding, clearing, and validating signatures. In some cases, however, the signature field becomes locked after you sign it.

When digital signatures are validated, an icon appears in the document message bar to indicate the signature status. You can inspect additional status details in the signatures panel and in the signature properties dialog box.


Signatures panel for digital signatures

The Signatures panel displays information about each digital signature in the current document and the change history of the document since the first digital signature. Each digital signature has an icon identifying its verification status. Verification details are listed beneath each signature and can be viewed by expanding the signature. The Signatures panel also provides information about the time the document was signed, and trust and signer details.
