since ConTeXt supports form fields in PDFs, I wonder whether the
fields for digital signatures are available as well. If not, please
consider this a feature request/wish :-)
I received an internal document some time ago that represented a form
and was separated into three parts. Part one was to be filled out by
the employee (in this case: me). Under this part was a signature field
I could click which made Adobe Reader prompt for a digital
certificate. After I selected that, information about this certificate
appeared inside that form field I just clicked. The other form fields
were automatically locked afterwards. If I wanted to change them, I
would have to remove my signature.
Parts two and three were similar, but meant for management. They
needed to sign my request which in turn locked their edit fields.
So in other words: I would like to create such forms with ConTeXt :-)
I hate these work flows where people are told to "print out form x,
sign it and send the scanned copy via email" instead of just signing
It would also come in handy for technical and business documents that
need to be signed by the customer (for example an Interface Document,
System Design, Use Case, whatever).
I hope that is not completely out of scope for ConTeXt and not too
hard to implement. Otherwise I guess I won't see that feature for a
Thanks anyway; at least for reading this :-)
