If we are discussing the same function...
Open the Forms tools,
Look in between the Text field tool and the Barcode tool.
Or are you talking about something else?
Thanks, David. You helped me also. Now that I've found how to create the blank signature field, I wonder if you can help me on another matter. I have used a Topaz Systems Inc signature pad in Adobe 6.0. I have upgraded to 8.0. Now I can create the signature field but when I select "sign document" the programs bombs out [The program has encountered an unexpected error and needs to close] Do you have any suggestions as to what my next move is?
What happens if you disable or remove the third-party plug-in?
I suspect the plug-in will have to be updated to work with Acrobat 8.
If disabling the plug-in works, you will have to contact Topaz Systems.
Thanks David. You did answer my question. The tool just moved where I didn't see it.
However, I'm running into a problem with creating a signature field, enabling commenting in Adobe Reader, and then having an Adobe Reader user sign the field. I'll click on the field in Adobe Reader 8 and the signature prompt never comes up.
I've double checked all of the signature preferences and they are set to include the Windows Certificate store, but a prompt never comes up. Is there a specific setting I need to use for signatures in Adobe Reader?
I realize now that this is not the appropriate forum for my new question. I'll post it under the Reader forum.
Under the advanced pull-down, select "Enable Usage Rights in Adobe Reader".
Form 2nd post, I understand that I need to check for Signature tool in Forms->tools menu.
But I was not able to find tools under forms menu.
I am using Adobe Acrobat 8.0 standard edition.
Please let me know how to create an empty signature block using my version of adobe.
I have the same question as above - how do I create a blank signature field in Adobe 8.0 standard edition (NOT LiveCycle)???
This was availabe in 7.0 but I cannot find this feature in 8.0. ???
Please help! Thanks!
You should check out this document:
Or other security related docs on:
I am unable to find the Create Blank Signature Field feature anywhere. I don't have a Forms under my Tools menu, and the instructions in the User Guide on creating the blank field do not work as written. I am using Adobe Acrobat 8 Standard 8.1.2.
The only way I have been able to create a blank field is to place my signature each place I want a field, then right click and go to Clear Signature. It's backwards but it works. Hopefully Adobe will fix this error with a patch, or someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong.
Or... Just do it this way. in your toolbar click on the Pen (Digitally Sign Or Certify a Document) it's next to the lock. Then choose "Place Signature"
