We currently have a form that has a digital signature field located in it. Our employees take this form and have patients sign it using the Comment > Draw Free Form tool. I am hoping to improve on this, but I can't find much (even tried FoxIt)!

Is there a way to have a signature field (non-digital/not encrypted) or some field where if a patient touches the field (finger/stylus) then the field "opens up" for easier signing? Like I said, they currently just select the Free From draw tool and then use a stylus to write over the document. Maybe even if there was a way to have that tool selected once they click in the box, and then removed once they release the mouse/stylus again.

Thank you for replying, BUT we are using Windows laptops with touchscreens. Is there no add-on or feature that I can use to create a form/field using Acrobat and have them us it in Reader?
