    Am I only able to add images of signatures& initials during first log in?


      I created two signatures when I first logged in (over a year ago), but now need to add two images of our written initials, and, for the life of me, Icannot find a way to do it....!

          Hi cheras62545319, 



          Sorry for the delay in response. To customise digital signature appearence, you may follow below-mentioned steps:


          Users generally customise one or more signature appearances and store them for later use. Available signatures are listed in the appearance panel at signing time.

          To customise a new signature appearance:

          1. Choose Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Acrobat > Preferences (Macintosh).
          2. Choose in the left-hand list:
            • 10.x and earlier: Security and in the Appearance panel, choose New or Edit.
            • 11.x: Signatures > Creation and Appearance > More, and in the Appearance panel, choose New or Edit.


          1. Configure the signature appearance Title: Any title used to identify the appearance. These are useful for identifying which appearance to use for particular workflows.


          1. Set the graphic options in the Configure Graphic panel:
            • No graphic: No graphic is used.
            • Imported graphic: Choose File > Browse, select a file and choose OK.
            • Name: Your text extracted from the signing certificate.


          1. Set the text fields to display in the appearance in the Configure Text panel:
            • Name: The name associated with the certificate.
            • Date: The date signed. Signature appearances can only display local (computer) time, and it will likely differ from that in the Date/Time tab on the Signature Properties dialog when a timestamp server is used.
            • Location: The location associated with the identity configured in Acrobat.
            • Reason: The reason for signing.
            • Distinguished name: A name with details such as country, organization, organizational unit, and so on.
            • Labels: A label for each of the items above. For example, Reason.


          1. Logo: The logo or graphic used as a background watermark. The default watermark is the Adobe PDF logo. Your watermark will be shared automatically in all of your signature appearances.


          1. Set the text direction and character set in the Text Properties panel:
            • Text Direction: Choose a direction appropriate for the signer’s language.
            • Digits: If languages are installed that use digits other than 1234567890, the drop-down list will be populated with alternate choices. Choose a digit set appropriate for the signer’s language.
          2. Choose OK.
