Unable to sign with certificate


Level 1

I am using Adobe X Pro Version 10.1.2
I have one digital certificate that works fine. We recently added another for a coworker to sign forms, however the ID does not show up on the ID list when we click to sign. Going into Security Settings, I can see the Digital ID but when I click Usage Options the only option is "Use for Encrypting" while under my certificate the options are "Use for Signing", "Use for Certifying", and "Use for Encrypting". 

Does anyone know how I would add signing permissions for the other Digital ID?

Generally the Adobe Digital signatures work with the Windows Certificate Store. If you are using Windows 10, click start and type certificates, click on Manager User Certificates. This will open the Certificate Manager.

In the list at the left, click Personal and Certificates. The certificates installed on your pc should show. Right click the certificate and select Properties. Ensure the radio button "Enable all purposes for this certificate" is checked.

See if that helps.
