Sorry, I've been banging my head on this for too long. My "sign yourself" drop down in the fill and sign toolbar has two entries... scanned signatures I've used before. I don't remember how I added them and can't figure out now how to add others. All the documentation and "answers" on the web don't seem to match the UI I'm looking at. I'm running the latest version of Acrobat DC from CC. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I'm not trying to do digital signatures or certificates... I just want a set of scanned signatures I can place onto forms.

I am also having trouble removing siganture from "sign yoursel" in the Fill & Sign section.

It seems the remove button is greyed out, and I cannot remove either of the two signatures that are stored here.

Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

Angus

Please click on the minus sign (-) in front of the stored signature and then click on the plus sign (+) to add the new signature in Fill and Sign tool > Sign Yourself.

 

If it doesn't work, please try to repair the installation (Win Only) and reboot the computer once and see if that works. Go to Help > Repair Installation.

 

If it still doesn't work, please try to reset the Acrobat Preferences to default as described here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-default/td-p/4792... and try again to remove the signature as described and check.

OK, so that works to replace a signature on the "sign yourself" dropdown with a different one. I'm still looking for an answer as to how I simply ADD a new signature to the "sign yourself" dropdown without deleting an existing signature. How do I get to that "add signature" option without removing existing signatures?

I am dumbfounded. What could the thinking behind such a limitation possibly be?

Anyway, thanks for the answer.
