5. A prompt will appear telling you about the Signature Services from the Office Marketplace, simply click OK to bypass it.

7. Click OK.

8. A signature line will be inserted into the document.

9. Double-click the signature line.

10. Once again, the prompt about Signature Services will appear, you can check the Don’t show this message again checkbox if you want to avoid seeing this prompt again. Click OK.
