creating certificate-based digital signature field
In Acrobat IX I could create a digital signature field where the user, when getting the form and entering their pertinent information, could simply click on the field to digitally sign the form using their certificates from the employee badge. Did this option disappear entirely now? I don't want customers to have to select window, preferences, signatures and draw a rectangle to sign the form. Allow users to set up a block so the customer just needs to click the field and select their stored credential to sign the form. This is a MUST have option.
User has been guided to add certificate based digital signatures

Ok gang, i figured it out, no thanks to the so called ADMIN here.
You need to click tools from the upper set of buttons (next to "home").
Then select "prepare form". it might prompt you "To begin select a file, scan a document or start from scratch". Just hit the start button.
Now you should have some additional buttons on your top row, one of which (towards the right end) is "add a digital signature". Click that and place your box wherever you want your users to be able to click and sign. Don't worry about what you call it. When you save and close out, the name of the field will not be visible. Voila!
Adobe, hire new admins. Admins that care enough to read questions and answer them, instead of answer unrelated questions that weren't asked.

Please click on the signature field on the form.It should open up a window "Sign with a Digital Id" in case you have a list of digital ids already added to Acrobat. In case you do not have any digital ids added, it would throw, "Digital Id Configuration Required" dialog. Select "Configure a Digital Id" and then "Use Digital id from a file" [if you have a pfx file saved to your local machine] or "Create a new Digital Id" [when you want to create a a new pfx file]. Once you have added, or created a new digital id, it shows up in the list of digital ids to sign with. Please select the id ,Continue, and "Sign As " screen opens where you may have to enter the password for the digital id . Click on "Sign" . This would place the signature on the form field
Go to EDIT -> Manage Tools -> forms and signature -> Certificates -> ADD
Once you have done this you should be able to enter the digitally signature.
I can not figure out how to get the digital signature on the form and the directions are not helping
