Signature and Date Fields behaving as text fields

Hello!

 

I'm having an issue where in "Prepare Form" when I make a signature or date field, upon saving, the fields bahave as text fields, where in the past they did not. Imaged below are some of the fields in question with sensitive information redacted

In other forms I've created, the singature form always has a red banner on the top upon saving, indicating that an E-signature can be placed there. Here's and example

For some reason, though, since the most recent update of acrobat, these new signature and date fields behave as text fields. Does anyone know how to fix?

 

When looking into this issue, I found that it may be possible that I selected "This document requires signatures" which I stopped doing. I've also seen people state that when in the Prepare Form menu, to click "More" then "Revert to Acrobat Form" to convert it back to a regular acrobat form, but I can't find that option in the side menus:

Any ideas?

All the fields in the panel of your large screenshots are text fields, although date fields are text fields with a date format.  Check the "signature fields" properties.  Does it say "Digital Signature Properties" in the properties window frame?  Check the format tab of the date fields.  Are they formatted for dates?

I neglected to run an auto-detect to make these signature fields, but I have manually made them such with no change during error correcting

 

I'm not sure what happened, but I came back to Acrobat later and the issue seems to have fixed itself. Signature fields are not behaving as normal. I will remove this thread
