Our process is to sign documents before their release to the rest of the company, but at the time of release I add a script which includes a form field that displays the date printed and a future expiry date. When I try to run this script after it's been signed, it adds the field but the words are not visible. I tried having the script run at the time of the last signature field being signed but I have the same issue. If I run it before it is signed it's fine even after everyone signs the document. I do not have it locking the document after signing and the signatures are valid.
Is there something I can do to the signature fields to allow me to add a form field at the end?
I'm using Acrobat X Pro.
I presume that you cave a template for your documents with unsigned signature fields. Add a text filed (or other field type that you wish to use) to this template. Then you will be able to fill in this field after signing.
