How can I delete a signature box once I've cleared a signature?

Sean ~

Yes, we discoverd that only the signer can "clear" their signature. However, they don't seem to be able to "delete" their signature field.

The Tools - Content - Select Object is not available for selection.

How can we (or the user) delete the signature box, once THEY have cleared their signature?

Thanks! Karyn

When you say its not available, do you mean you cant see it, is it greyed out or hidden. What version of Acrobat, 9/X/Pro/Standard are you running. The method i explained was with Acrobat X. You are also not permitted to do this in Adobe Reader.
If you are running Acrobat 9 or under, this is 2 ways you can do it
View – Toolbars – Advanced editing. Then select the Select Object tool, you should then see a black keyline appear around the signature, you can then select it and delete it. Or alternatively, go Forms – Add or Edit fields, you can then select it and delete it. If in Acrobat X, you could go Tools – Forms – Edit to delete it.

Hope this helps?
