A Sign template is a reusable template of frequently used form fields. You can create a Sign template and use it for sending agreements for signature.

Steps to create a Sign template:

  1. Sign in to Adobe Document Cloud at https://documentcloud.adobe.com with your Adobe ID and password, or with your social (Facebook or Google) account.

  2. In the Quick Start section, click Create Sign Template.

    Choose Create Sign Template
  3. Enter a name for the template.

  4. Do one of the following to select a document and create a sign template:

    • Drag-and-drop the file onto the highlighted area.
    • Click Add Files, and then choose a file from Document Cloud, Creative Cloud, Box, Dropbox, or Google Drive. You can also choose a file from your computer. Click Attach.
    Add file to create a sign template
  5. Click Preview & Add Fields.

  6. The document is now ready for adding fields. The form fields are automatically detected in the PDF. Click the  button to place the detected form fields in the PDF document. Alternatively, drag fields from the tabs in the right pane and drop the fields where desired in the document.

    Note: If you have added multiple documents, the documents are converted into PDFs and combined into a single file. The combined file is opened for you to add appropriate fields.

    Add fields to template
    • To move a field, move your pointer closer to the field border until you see the drag handle, and then hold and move the field as required.
    • To resize a field, use the blue triangular drag handle, and then hold and resize the field as required.
    • To delete a field, select the field and hit the Delete key on the keyboard. Alternatively, you can right-click a field and select Delete.
