CAuTIon Office 2013 includes a program named SelfCert.exe
that can create certificates for signing your macro projects.
Because these certificates aren’t issued by a certificate authority and
don’t prove your identity, they are not usable for signing documents.
TRY ThIs A digital signature added by this procedure isn’t
visible in the document. However, you can place a visible
signature in the document, associated with a digital signature. On the
Insert tab, in the Text group, click Signature Line. When the signature
line appears in the document, right-click it and then, on the shortcut
menu that appears, click Sign. In the Sign dialog box, type or ink your
name, or choose a picture of your signature. At the bottom of the
dialog box, select the certificate to use to create the digital signature.
TIP When you sign a document, it automatically becomes
marked as final, as described in “Mark a document as final” on
page 402 .
