    Adobe Acrobat: death by a thousand paper cuts. Ironic.

    Great Video. Acrobat is not fun and very frustrating. I have thrown my pen many times.

    Ha! Are you sure? Ok/Cancel

    Jeffrey it’s been a long time hope all is well (aside from not being able to sign a PDF). I can almost picture Lewis Black riled up in his tie stealing this bit.

    Hmm… not making excuses here, but were you using Acrobat rather than reader? What happens when you try it in Acrobat reader? It is crazy that I have often found to actually USE a PDF rather than alter/author it, you really need to be in reader. Mostly curious.

    So… much… empathy…

    I’m looking at Tim Murtaugh, the shooter.

    You should be using Zosh. It takes a few seconds and you can do it from your iPhone or iPad. Best part is that it is free. Zosh.com.

    I created this esignature product called echosign.com. It’s much easier for both parties than using adobe. check it out and let me know if you think its better.

    How much did Poland Spring pay for product placement? :)

    Just went through the exact same mind numbing experience 2 days ago. Ended up using photoshop to add my signature electronically. Couldn’t bear to print, sign, scan and email.

    Being stubborn, after the important docs were sent off. I was adamant in getting it to work. 2 tries and reboot of Acrobat later, it finally worked.

    Must try Zosh.
