    Hi Chris,

    To create a text with empty fillable parts like the form you shared, you need to use the "Narrative Fields" widget and you need to use some special variables to define it.

    Please, see it from the below:

    I,  {Name : Your Name}, regarding all the documents that will be accessed in the ...


    Above, blue marked area represents the "Name" variable and red marks area is the hint text, so you need to use this kind of structure to define blank spots in your text. Also, please see the widget's wizard from the following image:


    For adding the Adobe eSign feature to your form, you need to use the widget called "Adobe DC eSign Services" and also you can find the tutorial about how to use it via the link below:



    For further assistance, please do let us know.
