    smooth Signature and e signature not appearing on PDF.

    Asked by jjland on October 19, 2015 at 06:25 PM

    Is there a way for the actual electronic signature from smooth signature or e signature to appear on a printable pdf? When i submit the form with these 2 options they don't appear on the pdf regardless of how i try to retrieve it.


    thank you

    I have just cloned your form 52886299989183 into my account, and after submitting it, the signature shows correctly in the PDF file of my submissions:

    I have subsequently logged into your account and replicated all the settings that you have for the included fields in the PDF files, such as Show Headers and Texts, and the PDF still displays the signature field without any issues:

    Can you please re-check this on your end, and if you are still having issues, please do let us know. As far as I can see in my testing, the signature is correctly shown in the PDF files of submissions on your form.

    Thank you.
