I have 2 custom stamp files that share the same DocumentID (I built one off the other). I'm unable to use both stamps at the same time and I believe it's because they share a DocumentID.
They both show up in the stamp menu, but when I select Stamp 2 the one that shows is Stamp 1. IT also shows Stamp 1's thumbnail where the second should be. If I remove Stamp 1 I can use the second stamp just fine.
The Document ID comes in two parts. Each time you save a PDF, one of the parts changes, so you can't have the same DocIDs.
More likely it's because the stamp names are the same. This is the same as the template name for the stamp page in the PDF. How exactly did you build the one from the other? Did you edit the page template name for the stamp?
They have different "Titles" under document properties if that's what you mean by name.
I made changes to Stamp 1 and 'saved as' to a different PDF with a different title. Is there something else I need to change?
What makes a stamp a stamp is that it is marked as a page template. The stamp name is the first part of the page template name. This is what you need to change. There are different ways to do this. Acrobat automatically creates a new stamp name when you create a stamp using the built-in stamp tools. If you just copy a file the stamp name remains the same.
So the easiest way to get your new stamp is to:
1. Move the stamp file out of the Acrobat Stamp folder.
2. Open acrobat and go to the Stamp Tools
3. Select "Create" under the "Custom Stamp" menu
4. Load your file as the image for the stamp,
This will get you a new stamp name.
You can also do this by manually editing the file and changing the Template name.
Here's are some articles that discuss the details of manually manipulating stamps.
I appreciate your help. It looks like the page template name was they key.
