Hello!

The Acrobat Image field option allow you to pick a image from your computer. Is there a way to make it choose a files from the list of attached files inside the PDF itself? 

Or a way to create a drop down field with images instead of text choice.

- No.

- Yes, but it's complicated and requires some scripting know-how. Also, it won't work exactly like a drop-down because you won't be able to close it by clicking elsewhere on the page.

Thanks!

Might use an Initals signature with a javascript to unlock all fields on save.

That's really a different question, and needs some more explanation. 

 

About your first question.

Why do you want to select an image from attachments? If it is because all the images are already setup for the user, then there are ways to do this that will allow you to select images from a dropdown. There are even ways to make it easy to setup. 

Let us know what you are trying to do and perhaps we can suggest a solution.

Or if you are interested in a custom solution you can contact me about it.

So you want all the signature images to be preloaded into the document?  

I imagine that you would like it to be easy to add or delete signatures, but make it so the users cannot easily do this? 

One solution is to store the signature images in hidden buttons on the PDF.  Another is to put the signatures in buttons on an attached PDF. Buttons are the perfect storage mechanism because they can be hidden and images can be easily moved from one button to another.   

 

This method could be made easy for you to manage and easy (idiot proof) for the users. However, the scripting to make it work is not simple.
