Word 2013 Digital signature RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just gotten upgraded to Microsoft office 2013, before this upgrade we where able to digitally sign protected word documents.  Now I cannot even find where the signature button is in word on protected or non protected documents.  Does anyone know how to digitally sign word documents?

  • Hi,

    In word 2013 you are able to digitally sign the documents at the following location:

    File - Info - Second button "Protect Document" - Last option "Add a digital signiture".

    I believe that's the option you are looking for. It might also be that during the upgrade the Add in to sign documents sigitally was not migrated. In that case look under File - Options - Trust Center - Trust Center Settings - Trusted Publishers.

    However i think you are looking for the first option.
