I was told there was a "Setting" in XI Pro that would allow me to have clients sign pdf documents with a stylus on my Tablet PC (I have a MS Surface Pro 2), without having to sign up for EchoSign or any other electronic signature service. Is that correct? If so, what is the setup or settings?
There are several third party plugins for Adobe Reader and Acrobat on the market, which allow to use the display of a tablet PCs as a capture device for handwritten signatures. Some of those plugins are enabling also the combination with real digital signatures without the need of any previous registration of the signatory.
