When you select a signature
field object, the Signature tab in the Object palette displays various
options that control which fields (form objects) you can lock after
the signature field is signed. The object types you can lock are
buttons, check boxes, date/time fields, decimal fields, drop-down
lists, image fields, list boxes, numeric fields, paper forms barcodes,
password fields, radio buttons, other signature fields, and text
You can also click the Settings button to define optional security
properties for the signature, such as the signature handler, signing
certificates, and certificate issuers.
Lock Fields After Signing
Specifies which fields (objects)
the signature applies to. The signature field can apply to all of
the fields in the document, all of fields inside a collection of selected
objects, or all of the fields outside of a collection of selected
objects. After the signing party signs the signature field, the
fields in the specified area are locked. This option is selected
be default when you add a signature field to a form design. If you
deselect this option, none of the fields in the form will be locked after
the signing party signs the signature field.
