How To Sign PDF Documents In Preview On Your Mac

You don't need to print out, sign, and then scan in documents. You can sign them right on your Mac. Using the Markup Tools in Mac Preview and other places, you can sign documents and fill in other text. Your signatures are saved for later use so it is even easier after the first time.

    This was very informative ... and something I've been struggling with for some time. Thanks!

    I had no idea how useful this could be. Thanks! A future segment on the other features on Mark Up would also be great.

    Anyone know if you can transfer existing signatures to a new Mac running Big Sur? I recently got a new Macbook Air and did the migration assistant but the signatures did not transfer over for Preview. I found some instructions online that related to Yosemite, but they didn't work for Big Sur to copy the Annotation file.

    Chris: My guess is that you came from a Mac that stored the signatures differently. It depends on the security features of your Mac. So you'll just need to add new signatures now that you have a new Mac.
