Hello,

I know how to create a Certificate-Based Signature, but Adobe Acrobat Pro DC seems to be extremely non-intuitive when it comes to creating a field for others to digitally sign using a certificate-based signature. I am the creator of the form and want people that open the form to simply click and have the signature populate.

Example shown below:

When you're in form editing mode, you can click the "More" dropdown in the right-hand pane and select "Revert to Acrobat Form", and then add a digital signature field.

Signature field created:

Previewing signature field:

Signature field is not certificate-based and requires typing text, it's simply a form box that allows text at this point. Help is appreciated to allow other users to click to populate a trusted certificate-based eSign complete with the red ribbon signifying so. Am I doing something wrong?
