Replacing unsigned pages with signed pages in a PDF on Windows using Nuance Power PDF

One of the easiest ways to insert a signed page in a PDF (replacing the corresponding unsigned page) is to use but this results in your data being processed outside the United Kingdom where different standards of data protection may apply. If you are concerned about this then an alternative method is to use PDF software such as Nuance Power PDF, or Adobe Acrobat. The example below shows a signed page being inserted using Nuance Power PDF version 1 (available from Other versions can be used but there may be slight differences in layout from the pictures shown below. 

1. Open the PDF document and print it out selecting the best quality print option on the print dialogue.

2. Sign the page which needs to be signed, using black ink.


3. Scan in just the signed page as a PDF.

4. Find the corresponding unsigned page in the PDF document, select it and right-click (or press and hold on a touchscreen) 




5. Select the Replace option and locate and select the signed-page PDF. The unsigned page will then be replaced in the document by the signed page.
