I am created an edible PDF and the applicant needs to submit a signature to “confirm” the application. Unfortunately we do not accept e-signatures, so it needs to be a real one. If we want them to submit via email, is there a way of having a 1 page signature page…which is somehow tied to the application (some id? Or some summary of the info? Not sure what) that the applicant could print, sign and scan, then attach to the email along with the PDF of the application? I'm not sure of how to solve this yet.
I am using Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2, along with Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro.
Hopefully someone can help me out on this,
What do you mean by "real" signatures -- digital signatures?
I presume that "application" you're talking about is a PDF document, right?
Digital signature is always applied to the complete PDF, not just some pages. Its appearance appears on some page but it still applies to the whole document.
The applicants who apply their digital signatures to PDFs must have distinct (personal) digital IDs (signing certificates/credentials) to create digital signatures (sign PDFs). Do you have in place infrastructure to provide them with digital IDs?
If you want applicants to be able to sign in Reader you need to Reader-Enable PDFs (application forms) that you create with LiveCycle.
