Adding digital signature to my word file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I want to sign with digital signature that my government provided to me.

    After creating word file in File -> Info -> Permissions I click to add a Digital Signature

    However I get this popup which says I need certificate and after clicking to YES it opens me useless microsoft page.

    I'm using Word 2016. Is it possible to somehow make word work with custom certificates?
