Is there a way to save more than one signature and initials under the fill and sign tools?
Signature is unique so there is no such feature to store multiple signatures or initials under fill & sign tool.
As a work around you create images of your signature using other application & save them at a location, then you can directly insert those images as a signature.
I had trouble using an image as it wasn't transparent, so I used the option to Change Saved Signature on the Place Signature drop down, imported a new image, inserted it where required the repeated the process to restore my original signature.
Please - Add multiple signatures Accounts My wife and me only have one computer and need to sign the same docs. the work around is very hard.
Exactly, this was not an issue w/ Adobe XI. You could change signatures with ease.
Agree! Helpful for Businesses as well, like when my boss is out and I need to add her signature.
Yes, this is an important feature to support multiple signatures. This feature is not about uniqueness you seem to be missing the purpose here as it is NOT for multiple signatures and initials for the same person rather it is for different people within the same family.
Please since this is not possible this is a feature request from customers.
Yes, multiple identity signatures for sure, but also, many people have formal and informal signatures, maiden and married name signatures etc. The program should allow for multiple saved images.
Not a satisfactory answer!
This is not practical and potentially encourages a lower degree of security by having to have random images of signatures scattered around. In our office we frequently have to sign for multiple upper management people. It would be tremendously useful to be able to retain previously applied signatures in a drop down menu and be able to apply them. This was a fundamental feature in the older version of Adobe for us and it is sorely missed in DC. Adobe has really pulled an Apple here and removed features for no apparent reason. Also in the old version of Acrobat the program would remember your viewing preferences for the left hand drawer. It is super annoying to have to click twice every time one opens a document just to get to the page images. (Something we need in our workflow). Hopefully Adobe will make some updates, especially since the price seems to be moving up.
This unique signature feature is a real problem. I guess I will have to go back to Acrobat Pro 11 to get better functionality. Bad design decision, Adobe!
There you go. That's the real intent of making it only one signature
You can create as many custom stamps as you want.
Go to Stamps --> Custom stamps --> Create --> Browse, then find already scanned signature (saved in pdf format), name this new stamp whatever you want and Save.
To place a signature, just find your signature under Stamps drop down menu and drag it to desired location. Resize to fit in the space. It works. Good luck.
A stamp is very different to a digital signature. The former is just a comment. The latter is a type of certificate that can be validated against a specific user, requires a password to apply, contains a time-stamp, locks the document from further editing, etc.
That's is an insecure workaround as stamps are not treated the same as signatures. There is nothing stopping someone from just inserting an image as well.
The issue has never been we cannot add the images of signatures it is that we cannot assign multiple images AS signatures and have them treated securely by Adobe Acrobat as @try67 explained.
This tip is not a secure way to place any signature on a PDF as many have stated. You're just placing an image file on the page! Adobe Digital ID (digital signature) found in the Certificates tool is a secure digital signature, and can be verified using a Certificate (FDF file with key code). The Stamp Tool tip is not a legally binding signature.
I have this same issue at work. I sign documents at work and I sign documents for my boss at work. My work around is this:
Save one signature as a signature and the other as "initials". There are two options on the sign button, one for signature and one for initials. So I can sign for my boss and myself with that. Hope it helps someone.
I also use the Siganture and Initials option to store two different signatures. What I now need is a third signature option. Even if it was as simple as "Signature 1" "Signature 2" "Initials 1" "Initials 2" then we could have four signatures.
I do like how Signatures means the signature goes behind the words on the letter whereas Stamps go on top of the document and covers everything that is behind it. Which isn't helpful at all for some of the forms we use.
Thank you!!!! Thank you!!!! Thank you!!!!
Great idea! Will do this (at least until I need initials!) Unfortunately we have 3 bosses! I think adobe need to actually talk to real users, not just the cloud-revenue-crew.
That's genius! Thank you! You rock!!
I agree that there needs to be an option to save Multiple signatures. We have an individual signature and a signature for the Company name that we use.
Please add the feature to save multiple signatures, for now adding a second name in the initials field is a workaround.
You can use stamps.
