Description Marco A.G.Pinto 2018-02-20 14:32:40 UTC
Anyway, after weeks or months trying to do it, I was told in the QA channel that it doesn't work with normal PGP keys.

Could someone add a textbox at the bottom of the signing window:
"You can only sign PDFs with x509 certificates."
?

[14:23] <samuel_m> marcoagpinto: gpg signing only works for odf docs
[14:24] <marcoagpinto> samuel_m: Buaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
[14:24] <marcoagpinto> why is there the option then?
[14:24] <marcoagpinto> for weeks/months that I have been at it trying
[14:24] <marcoagpinto> :(
[14:25] <samuel_m> marcoagpinto: you can use x509 certificates to sign pdfs
[14:25] <marcoagpinto> samuel_m: can't there be placed a tip saying that?
[14:25] <marcoagpinto> otherwise, other persons like me will think it is a bug
[14:25] <marcoagpinto> :(
[14:25] <samuel_m> marcoagpinto: feel free to do so
[14:26] <marcoagpinto> me?
[14:26] <marcoagpinto> I am just into linguistic stuff... spellers + autocorrect
[14:27] <marcoagpinto> maybe Áron could do it?
[14:27] <marcoagpinto> where is he?
[14:27] <marcoagpinto> "You can only sign PDFs with x509 certificates."
[14:27] <marcoagpinto> :)
[14:28] <marcoagpinto> you just need to add a TextGadget in the bottom of the signing window with this text

Guess we should update https://help.libreoffice.org/6.1/en-US/text/shared/01/selectcertificate.html and just change "Select Certificate" window to "Select X.509 Certificate".

Great idea!

:-)

Thank you!

If Bug 113278 is solved, than this could be a duplicate.

+1, this needs to be specified to save some time for other users who wonder why they can sign Libreoffice documents with PGP, but not PDFs.

Heiko, can you please get this done? 
Looks simple and it's last moment for 7.0.
