I upgraded to Acrobat Pro XI and I can't find a way to use my Wacom tablet to write or sign on a document. In the previous version under the sign tab there was a "place ink signature" where I could write with my Wacom tablet. It seems to have been replaced in XI with a "Place signature" button that allows you to create a saved "ink" signature and then just "stamp" that signature when you click on the "Place signature" button. That is great most of the time, however I often get documents where this button will not work. On some documents when I click it I get a dialog box that says:
To electronically sign this document or place initials, please click save a copy.
THis is obviously not what I want to do. I don't want to electronically sign the document.
1. Why does this happen on some documents while with others the "ink signature" that is saved works fine.
2. How do I just "write" on a document with my tablet?
I think you'll still have to Save a Copy. The file sounds as if it is Reader Enabled, which locks it, and Save a copy in Acrobat turns that off.
I actually figured that out... but it would still be nice to just be able to write on a PDF document with my pen tablet... how do I do that?
