Signature fields are saved in the PDF document. The signature fields can not be moved but only resized and deleted, provided that the PDF is not already digitally signed.

ViewSign Desktop UI Signature Field 2.png

Signed Signature Field

These fields cannot be edited or deleted because they are embedded into the PDF document.

Properties of Signature Fields and Areas Signature field and signature area have the same properties, which are:

ViewSign Desktop UI Signature Field Property.png
Field Name This value must be unique for the entire document. There cannot be two signature fields and / or areas with the same name in the same document.
Signature Required If it is set true, the signing process does not continue until this field is signed. The check box next to the signature field indicates whether this property is set.
Append Timestamp If it is set true, ViewSign Desktop affixes a time stamp in the specified field.
Detect Biometric Data If it is set true, the signature capture process includes the signature image combined with biometric data such as pressure, time and acceleration. These data are then encrypted and the information is embedded into the PDF.
Capture Photo If it is set true, will also include the picture of who is signing along with biometric data. During the signing workflow ViewSign Desktop launches the default camera and captures a photo that will fit with the other encrypted data in the document.
Pattern Applies only to signature areas. If set indicates the keyword that was used to generate the signature area.
Description If this is set true, this is text that will be shown in the capture window of signature.
