Steps to sign a document on iPhone using Markup.

To protect your Word document, convert the Word file to a PDF before emailing it to others. There are several benefits to doing this. PDF documents keep your formatting intact while protecting your information to a higher degree than a Word document would. You can also choose the level of privacy on a document, allowing you to lock the document as “view-only” or allowing others to edit after inputting a password. You can also easily highlight and annotate your text.

Markup also comes with a signature feature. It’s a quick and easy way to sign something you want to send out.

Follow these steps to add your signature to a PDF before emailing it:

  1. Attach the document you want to sign to your email.
  2. Tap the attachment and select Markup.
  3. At the bottom, tap the Plus icon on the Markup toolbar and select Signature.
  4. If this is your first time, sign with your finger. After that, your saved Signature will be waiting.
  5. Sign with your finger or select your saved signature.
  6. Move your signature to the location you want.
  7. Tap Done in the upper left corner.
  8. You’re ready to email your signed document.

Now that you know how to sign a Word document on iPhone, learn how to insert signatures into nearly any type of document. When you’re on the go, your business can’t wait. Use your iPhone to sign documents and keep moving forward.
