is it possible to perform remote signing (sign prepared data by self) on an Office document in a way similar to PDF (e.g. something like setting the RemoteSigningMode and then sign the hash in a callback)?
I seem to not be able to find it anywhere.

Hi David,

I believe that the use of Distributed Crypto (DC) scenario is the only way to sign Office documents remotely. There is currently no support for synchronous signing in OfficeBlackbox similar to RemoteSigningMode in PDF.
