    Is there anyway to prevent people from leaving partial signatures.

    Is there anyway to prevent people from leaving partial signatures. We have some people that think they are so smart to avoid signing a required field that they place a few dots in the signature section. Anything such as it tracking the amount of space the mouse moves. Its a great form guys!

    To my understanding you are looking for a way to prevent users from only partially signing your form signature field.

    Based on the situation I do understand the frustration that a problem like this could cause. 

    However, unfortunately to my knowledge I don't know of us having a way around that. The only thing I can think of would be for you to disavow it and ask the user to redo that particular field using an edit link.

    Also, though I would like to point out that we do have MouseStats Widget which basically tracks how long they spend on the form and each form field. Maybe this could help you?
