Can an electronic signature be created in Adobe 9, like in Adobe XI, where a signature can be scanned and placed or typed/drawn in adobe?
You mean like EchoSign? No, not "out of the box". If you are using Acrobat 9 or Adobe Reader 9 and you want an Electronic Signature like EchoSign then you will need to log on directly to the EchoSign website.
