MIDAS FORM-FILLABLE ACCOUNT OPENING PDFs
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO USE THE FORM-FILLABLE PDF
To open and complete a form-fillable PDF, you will need Adobe Reader 7.05 and above (version 9 is recommended). If you do not have it installed on your computer, you may download the latest version free of charge from http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions.
We suggest that you first download the PDF form to your computer or network drive, and then open it with Adobe Reader and fill it.
Fill in interactive forms
An interactive form contains fields that you can select or fill in.
Interactive fillable form
A. Purple message bar indicates presence of fillable fields. B. When clicked, shows where fillable fields exist.
1. If necessary, right-click the document, and select either the Hand Tool or the Select Tool from the pop-up menu.
The pointer changes to a different icon as you move it over a field. For example, the Hand tool changes to an I-beam when you can type text into the form field. Some text fields are dynamic, meaning that they automatically resize to accommodate the amount of data you enter and can span across pages.
2. (Optional) To make form fields easier to identify, click the Highlight Fields button on the document message bar. Form fields appear with a colored background (light blue by default), and all required form fields are outlined in another color (red by default).
3. Click to select options, such as radio buttons. Click inside a text field to type.
4. Press Tab to move forward or Shift+Tab to move backward.
5. When finished, click the submit button to send the data to our secure server.
Setting up a digital signature in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat
A digital signature is an electronic version of a hand written signature. In order to be able to electronically sign documents, you must first set up a digital ID. Once you complete the digital ID set up process, you are ready to begin signing documents electronically. The basic set up process is as follows:
1. In the PDF document you wish to sign, click in the appropriate signature field, then proceed to step 2 (click yes or ok, if prompted prior to reaching step 2).
2. Select Create a new Digital ID (exact wording varies for each Adobe version, could say “Create A Self-Signed Digital ID for use with Acrobat” or “A New Digital Signature I Want To Create Now”), and click Next.
3. Specify Where to store the digital ID – Select New PKCS#12 (PKCS#12 is more secure since it requires you to enter your password each time you digitally sign a document), and click Next.
4. Type your personal information (name, organisation name and email address) – leave the settings as they are, leave the Enable Unicode Support box blank, and click Next.
5. Enter a file location and password for your new ID file – either use the default file location or enter a different location if you prefer, create and enter password into both password fields, then click Finish.
