How to Enable 'Sign with CoSign' Right-Click Menu Option in Internet Explorer

To open a remote PDF file:
  1. Select OmniSign in the CoSign Control Panel. OmniSign is launched.
  2. Select File > Open and enter the URL of the remote PDF file. For example:
http://www.organization.com/documents/mypdf.pdf

OmniSign uses the Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) protocol to download the PDF file from a remote web server, perform the digital signature, and upload the file to its designated location.

After downloading the file, you can use OmniSign to perform all available operations on the PDF file, such as adding digital signatures, adding digital signature fields, etc. The File > Save operation saves the PDF to its
remote location.

You can also use the HTTPS protocol for accessing the remote file in a secured manner. In this case, it is mandatory that the HTTPS server site be trusted by the connecting client.

In addition, you can configure OmniSign so that it can be launched from the right-click menu of a link to a PDF file (if the link is in an HTML document displayed in Internet Explorer).

To enable OmniSign to be launched from the right-click menu of a link to a PDF file:
  1. Select OmniSign in the CoSign Control Panel. OmniSign is launched.
  2. Select Tools > Show in Internet Explorer Popup Menu.

The result is that in any HTML document in Internet Explorer, if you right-click a hyperlink to a PDF file and select Sign with CoSign, OmniSign uses WebDAV to download the PDF file from a remote web server, perform the digital signature, and upload the file to its designated location.
