I have always added a signature via the "Fill & Sign" function for basic forms. I did so as recently as two days ago. Now, my previously saved signature (which I've used for a long time) no longer comes up as an option to use. When I try to create a new signature, all I can do is type my name in the box -- the "Change Style" tab does not have any options for additional "styles" of signature. I need to be able to use a signature that LOOKS LIKE a signature, but all I can get now is a basic printing of my name.
I have tried the directions here: Signing PDFs in Adobe Acrobat
And I know that I could use the "Certificates" function -- but I do not want to do that. I merely want to reproduce a signature-looking image and then protect the document -- but the "signature" function is not working properly for some reason.
I have rebooted the computer, checked settings, done every single thing that I could possibly think of -- but a function I have used for years no longer works.

Is it possible that your institution have changed the setup? Some options send files out of house and get blocked for security reasons.
Very unlikely -- as there is nothing on the IT/Software institution site saying anything about it and it is not a function that would be suppressed.
I can "create" a new signature -- I just don't have any options to change the font/format of the text itself -- so the "signature" I can create is just printed text. There is a problem somewhere/somehow with the drop-down "change styles" function -- there are no "other styles" to change to.
