    Signatures not showing in PDF files?

    Asked by GloryBee on January 05, 2016 at 05:00 PM


    We have a form where we require users to submit a signature. Recently these signatures stopped being included in the downloadable PDF forms and instead there is a small box.

    I created a test form with two signature boxes using both smooth signature and e-signature but none are displaying in the PDFs. 

    Is there a way to fix this?

    I was able to see the problem as well on the test form http://www.jotform.com/60046537534151


    but it does show on the submission data 


    Our higher team support are aware of this glitch already and are now working on a fix.

    We will notify you here once fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

    I am also having the same problem. When I view the submission it shows their signature, however when I save as .PDF the signature is blank. Would greatly appreciate a fix on this soon since I am having to print off contracts and have them sign those. Thank you in advance.
