    Could you please give us the link that you have sent to yourself over email so that we try to see the form in the same way that you did?

    That would allow us to see why the signature field might not be working for you.

    Of course, if the form is the PDF version of your online form, do let us know.

    Thank you for the link. Looking at it, I see that the form does not actually have a signature field, just the elements set to look as a line for signature.

    This would be OK if you print out the form and sign it with a pen, but for online signing you would need to remove that and add the signature widget like E-Signature

    That would allow you have it filled out online and submitted - as well as signed if printed out on paper.
