Covering The Basics

MacOS is a great operating system. It comes by default with Preview, which can do plenty with PDF files.

My favourite is signing forms so I can return them to the sender. I’m not talking about digital signatures, but plain old handwritten signatures.

How it works is pretty clever. You take a piece of paper and sign your signature on it. Then you hold it in front of the Mac and it will scan it using the built-in webcam. And voila, you can now place it in the PDF document and save & send.
