Multiple signautures on a word document. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    So I have a document with multiple signature lines at the bottom. The document is being shared on the company intranet. The issue is sometimes we can get more than one signature and others we can't. It seem very hit and miss.

    Also another issue is with regards to editing. I have restricted editing to the whole document so no changes can be made other than a signature. Despite this when testing, if I try to edit I receive the alert "editing will remove signatures"...if I choose to "edit anyway" the signatures are removed despite actually not being able to change anything.

    Any ideas on a workaround?

    Thanks in advanced

  • What've the version of Word you initially create the documents? And what's the version of Word you are currently using? Try to run Word.exe in safe mode to check if the issue still persists.

    Winword.exe /safe


    Winword.exe /a

    To disable the suspeious add-ins if the issue would be gone after we startup command line switches to start Word.


    If you are using Word 2010 and the document is created by Word 2007 or earlier version, the following hotfix may fix that.
