You don't have to add any field box for that. You can send the PDF as it is, and the other person will just need to add the signature as per their wish with the Adobe reader.
The issue I'm facing here is, some people that will be receiving/using the file may not be aware that adding or drawing a signature is even possible, hence my interest in having the "Place Signature" box pop up when they click on the "Signature" field.
Thank you for that link, but that's not what I'm looking for. When someone clicks on the field that I specify, I want this box to pop up.
Edit - Per some research I've done, I've created a button to run a Script when clicked, but neither of these worked:
1 - app.execMenuItem("FillSignApp");
2 - app.execMenuItem("_BasicEchoSignPane");
Thank you for elaborating your concern but I would like to inform you that you will get this option only after clicking on Fill and Sign tool.
And also there is no such option in Acrobat application which will give you this particular option or else if you want you can use the Digital signature field so when your client click on it it will give them the window to create digital signature if they don't have one with Acrobat reader also.
