I was assigned a task, and although I can think of other ways to do this, it is the preference of my employer. Basically, I need to write code that will add a menu option for printing. The user will tab to the menu, select "Print Signature" and the code will save the document as a jpg and then save the jpg as a pdf. This is to make the signature more natural looking.
Thanks in advance. I am excited to learn more about Adobe.
I really don't understand the reasoning behind wanting to do it this way. How would it make any signature look more "natural"? Also, what kind of signature are we talking about here? If it's a Digital Signature then it's even more of a bad idea, as it will also invalidate it entirely.
The best method for the type of script you've described is an Acrobat Automation Script. You can find out more about writing Acrobat Automation scripts here:
However, you mentioned that this was about a signature image. I have an inexpensive tool for creating high quality signature images. An Acrobat Signature stamp specifically. Contact me at email@example.com if you are interested.
