Hello!

I have a 2000 document, which needs to be signed manually (u know with a PEN).

So I scanned my signature, I vectorized the scanned signature and I added that file to Adobe Acrobat.

I can see my signature in the "Comment Section" - "Add stamp" - "Dynamic" - My Signature.

My question: Can I add this stamp on my 2000 pdf document in a single click, with a slight rotation (+- 20degrees) and a random location  (a given location to which I add +- 1 inch <up-down-right-left>)?

The pages are all the same format.

I have Adobe Acrobat X

Ok, in order to achieve my question I used C# and iTextSharp framework.

This is the code. The code is writen in Visual Studio and you need to add a reference to itextsharp.dll to the project.

Doc1.pdf is the source PDF in which I would like to add the stamps.

JD.wmf and DPI.wmf are my images that I use as stamps

Result.pdf is the result pdf with applied stamps.

using iTextSharp.text;

using iTextSharp.text.pdf;

using System;

using System.IO;

namespace ConsoleApplication

{

    class MyCl1

    {

        static

I found the "Batch Stamp Utility" from here: Batch Stamp Utility - idtPlans LLC

A very nice tool.  I put the javascript file in notepad and I found the code which I would like to tweak a little:

if (StampTool.strGRP1 == "AAll") {

var pg = 0;

var nmb = this.numPages;

for (i = 0; i < nmb; i++) {

//here i would like to rotate and change the coordinates of the selected annotation before applying it

// could u tell me how could I do that or show where should I look to find more information about this

oProps.page = pg;

this.addAnnot(oProps);

var pg = pg + 1;

} st.destroy(); }

A stamp annotation has a rect property and a rotate property. You'd use these to control the placement of the stamp on a page. More information on these two properties is in the Acrobat JavaScript reference, but if you need help, post again. Here's a good tutorial that will probably be useful: https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/auto_placement_annotations

I mention this tutorial since it's possible that not every page has the same rotation, so you should be prepared for that.

After losing 1-2 hours to understand how can I create a HelloWorld application using Javascript in Adobe, I realized that the PDF business is too big not to be used with Java or C#.

So I found a more elegant (and easier for me) solution to my problem, without JAvascript. Tomorrow I will post the solution.
