I have reported this but for Writer, but this is relevant for all parts of LibreOffice where signing is used.

We are using lately many digitally signed and/or encrypted Emails. Also in some cases it is governmental obligation to sign some documents.
LibreOffice is doing great job in providing this.

But there is missing a very important functionality when users are printing such documents.
Most of users would like to have such signed documents printed on paper.

But after the printing of such documents, on the paper are missing any evidences that the printed document is signed by certain person and if the documents signature/s is/are valid and if the key is trusted.

This possibility is urgently needed in many cases of the real life and is creating a lot of troubles when signed messages need to be printed and used on paper.

Please possibly provide some option in the UI of LibreOffice, to make possible for the users to put on the paper image of the printed documents some easy visible information about the possible signatures, signature comments, who signed and the trust of the keys he/she is using.

Customers shall have the options if they would like to print the document with this information or without it.

With best regards,

Sounds to me like an enhancement.
