Create a signature request with an already signed document

When you import a document that has already been signed, meaning it already contains an electronic signature, you can only:

  • Add new signers

  • Drag signature fields wherever you want on the document

But you will not be able to:

  • Drag initials

  • Drag read-only text

  • Drag text input fields

  • Drag mention fields

  • Drag checkbox fields

  • Drag radio button fields

Why? By adding new information to an already signed document, the document is altered, and the previously affixed signature is invalidated.

Yousign does not allow these actions to avoid altering already signed documents.
