    sign document with "Draw my signature" and send it via http-post

    Reeth4711

      Hi,

       

      I have a given pdf-document with a signature field. When im opening it with AcrobatReader XI, i can Sign / Place Signature / Draw my signature. Then i can "Save a Copy". That works pretty fine.

      Now i place a button in the pdf-document to send this via http-post to a given adress. When i now open that pdf-document in the AcrobatReader XI, trying to sign that. I only can do this with Sign / Place Signature / Use a certificate. But there is no way to "Draw my signature".

       

      Have i missed an option to do this? Pls tell me if there is a chance to sign the document with "Draw my signature" and send it via http-post.

       

      Or is this part of the concept? When im looking for a solution i found EchoSign with E-signatures.

          What's available depends on how the for is set up. If you include a button with a "Submit a form" type action and/or Reader-enable the form, then e-signing (drawing a signature) will not be available in Reader. If the document is Reader-enabled, then digitally signing will be. So for what you want, do not Reader-enable the document and you can instead use the submitForm JavaScript method to submit. The site that has the JavaScript documentation wasn't available at the time I wrote this, but post again if you need more help with this.

            Great help thanks, that works with AcrobatReader as i have written above.

             

            There is another thing. I like to open that pdf-document embedded in a browser (e.g. Firefox). When i now Sign / Place Signature / Draw my signature, i have to save a local copy. That is probably what has to be done anyway, but i can't send the pdf-document singed embeded in the browser? I have to open the local copy with AcrobatReder, sign it and send it.

             

            Is there a way to sign and send the pdf-document embedden in the browser?
