I am trying to create a dynamic stamp (I wish to add a date and Signature to a newly done static one) with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Version 2021 on a Mac.
I started by following the process described on https://helpx.adobe.com/au/acrobat/kb/create-custom-dynamicstamp.html but I can not find the folder "Stamp" described on point 5.
but in DC there is no folder "Stamp".
..what to do?
I have then found this different precess https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/lc_custom_stamp_tip.pdf
but on this one I get blocked on Step 3 as I can't seem able to access the "Text Field Proprieties"
...where do I find it?
Can anyone help?
- If the folder is not there then create it.
- Those instructions are for a very old version of Acrobat, but you can reach a field's properties by going to Prepare Form mode, right-clicking it and selecting Properties.
thanks for your answer, I went to Tools > Prepare Form and when I right cick and select Proprieties the proprieties do not allow me to add the Java Script for the automatic date.. do you know why? what should I do to create this dynamic part on the Custom Stamp?
What do you mean by "the properties do not allow me to add the Java Script for the automatic date", exactly?
Please see attached screenshot, in my Text Field Proprieties I seem unable to find where to add the Java Script.. I only have General, Apperance, Position and Options and "Calculate" is simply not there..
Click on Tools - Prepare Form and then click on "More" at the right side of the window and then on "Revert to Acrobat Form". In the future, do not tick the box that says "This document requires signatures" when creating the form.
You'll find detailed information on the dynamic stamp location here:
And general information here:
thanks for your reply, when I try to access "Dynamic Stamp Basics " to understand how to set the date to show athomatically on my custom Stamp the web site you recommended asks me to subscribe and pay a membership fee.
Does Adobe have this process describe in his "Acrobat Help" instead?
