How do I add a new signature when the add signature option isn't showing?

When clicking on sign I can only use the existing previously saved 2 signatures.

How do I get the add signature button back?

Please look at the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/in/reader/using/fill-and-sign.html#sign_and_initial_form for more information.

 

Hope this will help

Thank you Amal. That does help.

Is there a way to add a "stamp" to documents (like adding a signature, but just a few lines of plain text, ideally with text formatted if possible)?

Your design sucks. Remove this limitation or make it obvious to the user why the add signature option is hidden from them.

Thank you, Amal!! This problem has been confounding me for a year. Why Adobe doesn't just SAY this in that dialogue box or elsewhere obvious in the fill and sign feature is incredible. Anyway, I'm so glad to have found the answer here.

Just wanted to add that I also wanted to add more signatures, as I need to sign on behalf of family members.  Will try out stamps, but could not figure out what was wrong that I couldn't add more buttons.  Would be helpful if you added a note to your documentation.
