How to Insert/Delete Signature in Apple Pages

You will be required to first generate a digital signature for yourself before you can insert or add a signature to a document using Apple Pages. The processes of printing and faxing can be extremely frustrating and time-consuming. You can do that quite easily using the Preview application that comes standard with macOS.

  • Step 1: Open the file/document


    Launch “Preview” and open the PDF file that needs to be signed there. To access the many tools available, use the toolbox icon located in the top right corner. You will need to log into Apple Pages and then use the CMD+Shift+4 keyboard shortcut to capture a screenshot of a blank space on the screen.

  • Step 2: Click on the Signature tool

    When you select the Signature tool from the toolbar, you will be presented with three distinct choices for designing your signature. After that, scroll down to the bottom of the list and select “Create Signature” to start keeping track of your signature. You have the option of putting your signature on the document using the trackpad or putting your signature on the document using your iPhone or iPad—use the camera to create your own unique signature.

  • Step 3: Click on the “Click Here to Begin” button


    Press any key after you have finished writing your signature on the touchpad. It’s possible that getting a good signature will take a few tries, so keep trying until you reach a point where you are satisfied with the result. When you are satisfied with it, click the Done button to save it.

  • Step 4: When deleting your signature, click on the signature and hit “delete”

    There are going to be some instances in which the Markup toolbar is not displayed. After doing so, all that remains is to click the button labeled Show Markup Toolbar. After clicking the Sign button, you will need to choose the signature you wish to erase and then click the X that is located to the right of it.
