cursor wherever you want the signature line to appear.
2. Select Insert➝Signature Line (Alt, N, G) to open the
Signature Setup dialog box.

signature to the document.

Coauthoring and Simultaneous Editing
They say writing is a lonely occupation, conjuring images of a solitary author
scribbling away by candlelight in a drafty garret. But that kind of writing is so 19th century.
Today, writing is more and more a collaboration. Several authors might work together
to draft a report or even a novel, for example, or relatives might share memories for
a family history.
