    You can only remove a signature if the pdf document has not been secured.
    If the pdf shows a pad lock icon at the bottom left of your screen that the pdf is secured.

    I think that combining digital signatures AND security produces an
    unmodifiable file. Really unmodifiable, under any circumstances. I may
    be wrong, but if you want a workflow where you need to go back, you
    need to keep your unsigned, unsecured documents.

    If it doesn't have an open PW, maybe one of the PDF password crackers will work, have you tried that?

    I don't know if this will help or not. I am testing adding a signature to an Adobe form using a signature pad. The form is password protected (I set the password). After I signed the form, I attempted to remove the document security. I received an error that I had to remove the signature field to change the security. I right clicked on the signature field and selected delete signature. I was then able to change the document's security.

    Yeah, I tried that also. But it keeps telling me that the sig file is READ ONLY.
    Oh, never mind. I recreated the document.

    Go to Edit -> Protection -> Manage Trusted Identities..

    On the top Select Certificates from the "Display" drop down.

    Select the cerificate you want to delete and press delete.
