    Is it possible for me to upload an existing form and have someone sign it using your format? Thanks

    Would you please give us a bit more details into what you would like to achieve?

    If I understood correctly you have some forms (on paper) and would like to upload them and show as such to your users with them being able to sign it using one of our signature widgets?

    Best Regards,

    This would be possible if you preview the PDF on the jotform using our widget and then add the signature widget under it and save it as such, but I am not sure if you need it to be signed directly on the PDF itself or if this would be OK as well.

    The widgets in question in regards to showing PDF would be:

    PDF Embedder

    PDF Previews

    Signature can be acquired by using either one of the next widgets:


    Smooth Signature

    I would also like to apologize for replying you so many days after your response, but this is due to our system not accepting email responses for quite some time now. We have just released some of them today and our team is working hard on making sure that everything gets resolved. In the meantime I would suggest that you reply directly on this thread instead of sending an email: http://www.jotform.com/answers/491597

    Thank you for your understanding and patience.
