Quick Tip: How to Sign a PDF in macOS Catalina Mail

Like me, you’ve probably had a PDF mailed to you that you need to sign. It’s a pain to print it, sign it, then scan it back into your email for returning. Thankfully, there’s a better way.

You can actually sign it right in Mail. Drag a PDF into the email you’re sending, hover over it. At the top right, and you’ll see a little button appear.

Click the button, and you’ll be offered a range of Markup options, including one for signing documents.

You can either add your signature by holding a signed piece of paper up to the webcam on your Mac. Or you can draw on your trackpad.
