By Lisa Croft – April 17, 2015


It’s easy to fill and sign paper documents on mobile devices using the new fill and sign PDF online*. Follow these simple steps:

1. Tap to open the Adobe Fill & Sign DC mobile app.

2. Tap Select a form to fill out and choose Take a Picture from the menu.

3. Use the white button to take a picture, and then tap Use Photo and tap Done in the upper right corner.

4. At the bottom of the app, tap the Crop tool and use the guides to crop the image. Tap Done when finished.

5. Use the Magic Wand tool to clean the image if necessary. Tap Done when finished.

6. Tap anywhere on the page to create a field. Press and hold to select annotations such as checkmarks.


7. Tap the Signature button at the bottom of the app to add your signature. Use a stylus or your finger to sign in the signature field. Move and place the signature field.

8. Tap the Profile button at the bottom of the app to get pre-filled values such as your name and date. You just need to fill in this information once, and then you can use it on all future forms you complete with the Fill & Sign app.

9. Once the form is complete, tap the Share button in the lower right corner to email.

Hi Douglas Y,

When you double tap on the PDF and the text box appears with the cursor, you should be able to press and hold in the box to paste content.
The auto-fill feature is not available but you can add custom fields to your Profile.

How do I paste text copied from another document?  I have standard texts, such as addresses, phone numbers, that I frequently need to add, but there appears to be no way to paste into a text field on Android. Furthermore,  the Adobe Fill & Sign seems to disable the feature of my virtual keyboard that allows me to select the word without typing it out completely.  This makes filling PDF docs very error-prone.

Hi Brian P.,

In your Fill & Sign Profile if you look under the Settings, you can turn on Suggestions to help with auto correcting.
