Hi Daniel -

That’s an interesting problem, and I’m not sure why it is occurring. When I read your post, the content of your fields came to mind as a possible issue. Try an experiment with a really simple form containing a handful of text fields. Open the properties for each field, and pick a specified format on the Format tab. Sometimes identifying the field by its contents will do the trick.

Hi Chris -

Saving backups automatically is a great feature. You can save them elsewhere, of course, but it’s nice to have them available and listed right in the EchoSign window.

Hi Michelle -

EchoSign is a great feature, and it does save a lot of time. You have to be aware of how it works, but it’s easy to figure out and incorporate it into your workflow.

This is a great feature.  Unfortunately the convert to echosign is not accepting any of my existing fields for conversion, even simple text fields.

I’m designing a document in InDesign, I open it in acrobat, start editing a form and it recognizes all of my fields mostly as text fields as it should (I have about 80 in the document).  I convert to echosign and it dumps all of the fields except a single signature field.  :(

I like how echosign will file your documents by itself and save a backup.

I definitely need to learn more about EchoSign.  It looks like it could really be a great time-saver.
