Are you able to open PDF Writer? As far as I know (tested with actual master) PDF-documents are always opened in Draw => NEEDINFO

Yes, if you tick "hybrid PDF (embed ODF file)" when exporting the pdf, then it will be possible to open in writer because it has the odf in it. But once you add a digital signature it does not open in writer anymore.

Thanks, you're right, but I wasn't aware of that possibility.

Hayder, unfortunately nothing has happened with this bug report for more than half year. So I'd like to ask, if it is still valid, because a new major release of LibreOffice is  available since this bug was reported. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

And if it is still present, is it possible to add a hybrid PDF-Document with digital signature? Thanks
