Does anyone know how to place a digital signature into a Dynamic stamp?
I would like the insert signature prompt to come up when the stamp is placed if possible.
Any help would be great.
Reader users can make a stamp out of their hand-drawn signature, just like they can set up an appearance for a digital signature that uses their hand-drawn signature. Since the document will be Reader-enabled, they will be able to place their signature as a stamp, or thye could use the pencil tool to draw their signature.
A Digital Signature and Custom Dynamic stamps are 2 very distinct objects.
A Digital Signature uses a Digital Certificate and if used for commercial or legal purposes needs to be verifiable by any user at any time when provided with the appropriate public certificate. A digital signature can also disclose if a PDF was changed after the certificate has been applied.
A Dynamic Custom Stamp is only dynamic until placed, after which the dynamic elements are not alterable. I do not think it is possible to combine the 2 objects and keep all the features of the Digital Certificate.
If you include a Digital Certificate signature to a Dynamic Stamp, the ability to verify the certificate and whether or not the PDF has been changed is lost!
You could create a Dynamic stamp with a facsimile signature image and a date field that is dynamically filled in when the stamp is placed. If you then need a digital certificate you would have to apply that after the facsimile signature stamp has been applied.
