Hi, I'm using Designer 7.0 and have 2 questions.....

 

1 - Is it possible to add a password to the signature field so when I go to sign my form I first have to enter a password?

 

2 - Can the PDF be set up so that all fields must be populated before the user is allowed to sign?

 

Am new to this so any help is much appreciated!

    Not with Designer 7.0 alone.  I believe you could do this if you purchase the Reader extension service

    The signature field by definition, should require you to enter a password when you sign the form with your digital certificate.

    As well, Acrobat / Reader has built in logic which automatically validate mandatory fields by coloring them, before a submit event. On a signature field, you could cancel the sign operation using the following script on the preSign event of the signature field to prevent the form from being signed:

     

     

    xfa.event.cancelAction = 1; // this will cancel the sign action. Requires reader 9.0 or later.

     

    Example.

     

    if (xfa.form.execValidate() == 0) {

            xfa.event.cancelAction = 1

          }

     

    I would recommend upgrading though, since the 7.0 products have end-of-lifed with respect to support.
