Subject Re: Pdf-document with one signature visible in each page
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2018 13:05:00 GMT
A digital signature applies to the entire file as a whole. There's no need
to place it on every page, and it's not possible, either, as it can't be
copied.
You'll need to sign each page separately, which will just balloon the size
of your file for no good reason.
