  • Save a Copy: Allows the user to save the file locally or in cloud. The file will be renamed based on whether user signs the document or not.
  • Send via Email: Allows users to upload the document to the EchoSign server where they can fill-in details and send the signed document.
  • Send via Fax: Same as the Send via Email option.
  • Get Others to Sign: Enables users to send documents that need signing to others through the EchoSign service.
  • The dialog which asks the user if they want to save the signed document is removed, thereby streamlining the signing process.

Digital signatures

  • The product now supports allowing administrators to control trust for JavaScript execution and other security restrictions for specific certificates through the use of cTrustCertifiedDocumentsByOIDs. The features essentially allows elevates documents to privileged location status if they are signed with a certificate that has a configured OID. If the values in this registry preference match an OID in a certificate’s Extended Key Usage field, then that certificate is trusted. For details, see the Preference Reference.

Tools Pane
