I have saved a signature in Acrobat DC through Signature, More, Configure Signature Appearnce.  The saved signature shows in the Appearances box, but when I try to insert it into a document using Sign Yourself, my only options are to Add a Signature or Initials.  If I choose Add Signature, I then have to find the initial file - it is not the saved signature.  How do i insert the saved signature in a document?  Is there a different way than through Sign Yourself?

Actually, after testing this, this doesn't work for the function I am needing it for. I have approvers that need to put their signature block into a document, then add text boxes to that block to add in specific information unique to each document they are signing. This works through the Fill and Sign, but not certificates.  How can I get the saved signature as an option when I click fill and sign?

Hello User,

In order to use the appearance created from Preferences->Signatures->Creation and appearance preferences, you have to use the Tools->Certificates.
Once you draw a signature field, you need to select a digital id to Sign the document. Once you configure a new digital id or select already existing one, click on next and it will land you to the space where you can select the appearance that you created from preference.
Select you rdesired preference and click on sign to sign the document.

 

Thanks.
