You must do it via the Stamp tool itself. Click it and then select Custom Stamps - Create New Stamp. Select the stamp's layout and category and then you'll be able to edit it directly from the stamps PDF file.
Thanks, but I am not sure how this would work.
I'd like to add more stamps to this series.
If I do what you suggest I get this dialogue window:
Not what I want, I think. If I navigate to the file with the 14 images that doesn't add the 15th (or even do anything at all, so far as I can see). But maybe I am misunderstanding.
Yes, that's exactly what you should do... Select the new image you want to add to this collection, and in the next window select the collection's name, to add the new stamp to the end of it.
Thanks. Then maybe I don't know where to find the collection's file. There is a file called NNN (a string of letters) under /Stamps (in the directory mentioned above) but nothing called (in this case) Blue Stamps.
When I am asked to create a new stamp I don't want this: I want to edit an existing collection.
If I go to "manage" stamps in Palettes, I see this:
Each of these sub-stamps is a different image. I guess I never named them after Insert, as it seemed too tedious. What I need to get to is to see a New New stamp with the desired stamp image, somehow saved to this list.
Update: I see that the final new New Stamp has added the new stamp sign (a par. marker). So perhaps your method added it to the file in App. Support/..../Stamps.
But I don't see this new image in the Stamps Palette called "Blue Stamps".
Maybe I need to restart Acrobat?
OK, now it is showing. I deleted some extraneous collections and the simplified file is working.
What a byzantine process! There are no clear guidelines anywhere (or there are but I lost the url ages ago)
thanks very much.
One more question. Is the best way to create new stamps like this:
open a pdf file; create a blank space; produce the desired symbol; extract the page with this symbol and save somewhere; add the page to the list as above?
Is it possible to adjust the order of the stamps as they appear in the palette?
