Is Permission.Signfile missed?

When I open a PDF in my FOXIT, it shows, in the document Security properties section, a field called "Allow Sign".

But when exploring the Permissions enumeration of PDF control, I don't see this one.

Am I considering something wrong?

Kind regards,

Hi DavidBS, 

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.  

To enable or disable the signing permission (as mentioned in Foxit Reader and Adobe Reader) of PDF document, need to use the FillFormFields (enumeration type) in PdfPermissionFlags. Please refer the below code snippet for more details, 

//Change the permission 
document.Security.Permissions = PdfPermissionsFlags.FillFields; 

Please let us know if you need any further assistance on this.
