The Signature block is not working

I need to add a signature block for someone else to digital sign it and for some reason is not working. When I am adding the box on "Edit"" mode I can see the box. When I preview it, it does not show. I know I can go ahead and add a border to it but still the person can't sign. I need the gray box to appear where it has a red symbol indicating to sign here and they can sign digital. I uploaded three screenshots to explain what's going on. The first one is how it appear when I am adding the signature box, the second one is how it looks when I preview it ( blank- nothing shows), and the third one is what I am looking for. Any help?

Hi,

 

Thank you for the screenshot.

Looking at the first 2 pictures, I guess you are applying a simple text filed for signature and that is the reason it looks blank.

Have you selected Prepare form>Add Digital signature (from menu bar at the top)? If not, then try that. digital signature.png

 

This will bring the "Sign here" dialog box as showed in last image.

If it still doesn't work then share a short video of step-by-step action taken at your end. 

 

Thanks,

Akanchha

Hi,

 

I appreciate you responding back to me. I notice what was going on. When I select "Prepare a Form", I was checking the box "This form requires a signature" (which is exactly what I need) and the opton that I needed didn't appear.  What I need is to create a box for another user to be able to sign it. Checking the check box "This form requires a signature, I think is for the creator to create a signature. It was a bit misleading on how to request a signature. By unchecking the box, I was able to add the box that has the red flag for someone to make a digital signature. Thank you

Your observation is absolutely correct. That option is needs to be checked if you (sender) would like to sign the document too.

 

Good to hear that its working for you now. Let us know if there's any further assistance is required. 

 

Thanks,

Akanchha

Neither of these have the red arrow that show for somone else to signe as I have in the past.

Hi there,

 

Hope you are doing well.

 

I tried to reproduce the issue on my end and its working fine, as shown in the screenshot below:

 

 

Would you mind sharing a small video recording of the steps you are doing? Also make sure you are using the signature field option and not just the simple text field and using it for signature and have the latest version of the application 23.08.20470 installed go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.

 

Hope this will help

Where did this option for a signature block go?  My computer updated Adobe again and now this field is gone.  How are we supposed to create a document with a signature field?  The signature block does not work because when you type into it it does not take you to adding your certified signature.  It just lets you type into it.
