Font Color should be available for change in the FIll and Sign

In our Industry all fill and sign portions of a form are required to be completed in Blue, therefore, the fill and sign portion should have the availability to change font colors.

    AS more of clients are requiring me to sign with Blue ink, if Adobe does offer this soon i will be looking at other options to fulfill our companies needs. I would think it would be a simple fix should you choose to listen to your users.

    We are asked to provide our input but it is discouraging to see that nothing changes. We need an option to sign in blue ink please.

    I was able to change not only color, but line thickness in Acrobat X and earlier, why was this feature removed in DC? It needs to be put back in

    Would really be helpful if signatures and initials could be in a different font color. Our organization requires original or digital signatures in blue ink. Thus not having this simple option requires me to print the document, sign in blue, scan back in. Would save a LOT of time if I could just digitally sign in blue. This seems like a no-brainer?

    This is a feature you would assume was available when the product originally created it. Please consider this enhancement soon.

    It would be nice if you could apply an outline to a font when fill a form (as known from Illustrator or InDesign).

    I'm trying to correct a document saved in black and white and still can't change colors in Fill & Sign.

    March 2019 - still not possible to change font or color? The app uses some defaults ones - when I start typing it uses sans serif, as soon as I use any letter with Czech diacritics, it changes to serif font. So every field looks different depending on whether it contains diacritics or not... Can I change some secret registry/settings entry where the 2 fonts are set?

    Not just signatures, is there any reason that I can't change color to check mark and dots? If not, I am jut forced to switch to Bluebeam from now on.

    Acrobat X and earlier allowed for changing color and line thickness of drawn signatures...not sure why these a-holes took the feature out in Acrobat DC. Job security, I suppose - need to keep breaking things so they can stay around to fix them again...

    Hopefully they add it back in - I know most places require you to print the document out, sign by hand, then scan back in. I had Acrobat X setup to look just like a blue ballpoint pen in color and thickness, so I didn't have to print things out and waste paper.

    We use this form for two separate entries - one at midterm and one at final for a post-secondary course. We would appreciate the ability to change the ink colour so we can differentiate between midterm and final marks.

    I use fill and sign to take off electrical drawings. Traditionally check marks are red. Also easier to see.

    Some countries, especially Mexico, Central and South America, require documents to be signed in blue ink. How can I change the ink color of the signature in the fill and sign feature in Adobe Acrobat DC? I have the 2015 Release (Classic)/Version 2015.006.30448. Will you be adding an update or add in for this feature. It would also be nice if we could select the font.

    Allow font choice in Fill & Sign, either as default or for each document

  • Brian J Dilks commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I currently use a few services that allow signatures I send to clients to come back as blue. The courts I work in requires that signatures are in blue. I like the way adobe is easier but I would love and option for the signatures to come in blue ink instead of only black.
