Hi - I have created a digital signature in Livecycle with a collection for locking down elements, and all works fine. However, I do NOT want the signature to print - I am only using this as a quick method of lock-down. I have set the presence to Visible(screen only) but this has no effect - it still comes out on the print. Any ideas on how to prevent the digital signature from printing?
The signature is not really an XFA object so I do not think that the presence will work for that. How about of you put a white rectangle on top of th esignature and make it visible in prePrint then make it invisible in postPrint. I have not tried this but logically it shoudl work.
Hi - can you be more specific? The signature I am using is simply the one found in the objects panel - and I found nothing to configure the visibility. I am happy with the solution I have at the moment, but I would be interested in an all-in-one solution.
After you've completed the form/document, you can certify it directly in Acrobat. Go to Advanced->Sign&Certify->Certify without Visible Signature.
This will also allow you to configure allowable actions.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding you. Are you signing/certifying the form so that
others can't alter it, or are you asking your users to sign the form so that
their entries will not be altered?

That is fine for me, but my users will only have Reader. Are you saying that
if I Reader Enable with digital signatures, then my users will be able to do
this as well?
