    Hello,

    Is there a way to create a form that is fillable by using an Apple Pencil?  In my company, I perform site surveys and it would be wonderful to do so with a form I've created in JotForm but then can fill out by hand using an Apple Pencil on an iPad Pro.  


    Thanks,
    Tom

    Hello Tom - I'm afraid most of our fields require a keyboard or an on-screen keyboard (for mobile and tablets). The only widgets that I know of that could utilize the Apple Pencil are signature fields. You can probably use these as dummy fields but keep in mind you will receive these as images on your submissions page as opposed to text-based data.

    If you're interested to give them a try, below are all the signature widgets we have:

    1. Smooth Signature

    2. E-Signature
