tablet pc and Adobe Acrobat

    Does anyone know if there is a plug-in for Adobe Acrobat
    (not Reader) to allow the pen and the tablet pc to sign
    digital signatures in the same manner a digital signature
    pad would be used. It's basically taking your hand
    written signature using the pen and placing it in a
    signature field on the PDF form. As far as I know,
    Acrobat doesn't inherently utilize this functionality.

  2. Adam,

    I may miss a step or two, but with Adobe Acrobat 5.0, here is how I add
    Digital Signatures.

    1. In MS Journal, write my signature and export the file as a TIF
    2. Take signature and load into Word etc, Save as PDF Sig1.pdf
    3. Open Adobe , Tools, Self-Sign Security, User Settings
    4. New Title, Under Show "Imported Graphic" and select the pdf with the
    signature, check all boxes that you want in Configure

    Goto Document, Select Digital Signature Tool , create sig box and select the
    one you just created.

    Hope this helps,
