From to managing your children's screen time to finding time for to shopping for essentials to learning new methods of getting work without all the normal tools you had at your disposal an office, working from home during a pandemic has its fair share of challenges.

Something as simple as signing a PDF or other document, for example, quickly turns into a tedious process of printing, singing, scanning and then sending e-mails – and at the end of all this you have a paper you don't longer needs.

But if you own a Mac you can use the built-in preview app to sign a document in under a minute, after going through the initial installation process – it's one of my hidden favorite features on Mac . The first step is to enter your signature into your Mac (more below). Then you simply select the signature you saved and your Mac will apply it to the document that needs to be signed. Easy as pie.

How to add your signature to a PDF

Now that the installation is complete, your signature is now in the system and you will see how fast Preview is when signing documents.

With your document open in Preview, follow the same process we just described, except that after you click the signature button, click on your signature.

A small box containing your signature appears in the document, which you can then drag and resize. Once you have created your signature, you can save the document and then share it.

I timed just how long it takes me to open a document and click the appropriate buttons to add a signature, and I could get it done in under a minute, and that includes adding the date by clicking add text button to Preview.
