    Signature Widgets are not Working on Edit Submission

    Asked by swapna_summit on February 26, 2016 at 06:52 AM



    I have used both Smooth Signature and E-signature on my form to test both.

    We want to use the PDF submission as a paper based form.

    On editing my form, I am able to clear and resign the Smooth Signature wizard, however, I am unable to clear and resign the E-signature.

    Also, post editing, the smooth signature remains as is from the first submission and the e-signature has disappeared from the edit submission, please advise,

    Hi there,

    According to my tests, "Smooth Signature" is working on the edit submission ({edit_link}), while the "E-Signature" is not. Please, see the test run from the below:


    So, please try to use the "Smooth Signature" widget again and let us know the results.

    Hi again,

    I replicated the same issue with you on the email and PDF version of submission, changed value on "Smooth Signature" widget is not changing from its previous version. So, I'm going to forward this issue as a bug, so our developers will on it to fix it. When there is an update about this issue, you will be informed from this thread via email.


    Thank you.

    We've just made an update.

    The signature will be loaded when editing submissions. 

    Please give the smooth signature a try and let us know.
