    I have performed at test submissions on your form at this time. Then I have tested to edit the submission. The signature box is cleared while on edit mode. This appears to be specific to your form as testing on simple form the signature is not erased after performing the submission.

    I did in fact tried to remove the E-Signature field from a cloned version of your form and then readded the e-signature field, this allowed the field to work properly. Not clearing the field while on edit mode. Nevertheless this will remove all the signatures from your submissions page. IF you do try this step. Kindly make a clone (backup) of your form before doing so. As it will remove the signatures from your records. And try the steps on the backup.

    I will go ahead and raise a ticket in regards to this issue to the Development Team. Once they have any updates in regards to this. They will let us know through this thread. Nevertheless I believe you might need to make a copy of the form to not loose the previous submissions made.

    If you want to clone my form with a working signature after edit:

    I just cloned your form and retested it. The signature is retained after making edits to the submission and resubmitting. Please let us know if you still encounter an issue.
